A loan of $1,800 helped to invest in the purchase of fine silver to increase production.


Pedro's story

Pedro and his wife and three children are Guatemalan silversmiths specializing in jade and sterling silver jewelry. They would like to invest in the purchase of fine silver to increase production.

Pedro and his family have been selling through NOVICA since 2010. This is their story:

"After working for silversmiths for six years, we decided to open our own workshop. We are all involved in the family business. We've developed a good working relationship. Everyone specializes in a different aspect and we complement each others' work."

"We appreciate this microcredit very much, because it will allow us to purchase enough silver to continue working for a good while. This in turn will allow us to invest in more materials and cover the salaries of those collaborating with us at the workshop. Many thanks, and may God bless you."
