A loan of $2,000 helped to purchase raw materials such as leather, wood, and glass.

Manolo's story

Working alongside fellow artisan Lucho, Manolo specializes in leather work. He would like to invest in a purchase of raw materials, such as leather, wood, and glass.

Manolo and Lucho have been selling through NOVICA since 2005. This is their story:

Manolo and Lucho come from families with backgrounds in art. "Our work is an artistic creation. We've worked together since 1994, and find it a source of great personal satisfaction. We both strive to transmit beauty and culture in every piece," say the artists. Manolo and Lucho break all preconceived ideas by combining a distinctive Peruvian look with the art of dedicated masters, all beautifully crafted by hand.

"To us, this microcredit means we can innovate new designs and be part of today's decor trends, while at the same time staying true to our essence and preserving traditional hand crafting techniques. Thank you."
