A loan of $200 helped to purchase raw materials such as clay and pigments.


Rolando's story

Rolando, who works alongside his brother Luis, specializes in Cuzco ceramic art. He would like to invest in the purchase of raw materials such as clay and pigments.

Rolando has been selling through NOVICA since 2008. This is his story:

"Our parents taught us to appreciate the importance of Cuzco ceramic art from a very young age," recalls Rolando. "We so wanted to help out that we would paint plates and offer them to our parents to sell, who instead treasured them. Our motivation comes from our admiration of Inca artistry and customs. Our compositions reveal the human aspect of this millenary culture. We describe this kind of work as art that breathes life into any setting."

"We plan to use this microcredit for a bulk purchase of clay and pigments, because when you buy in larger quantities the price decreases, enabling us to create more pieces. Thank you very much for supporting us this way, especially now when times are hard and we've been looking for a friendly hand."
