Patrizia's story

Patrizia is an artisan in Guatemala who specializes in cotton and recycled rubber accessories. She would like to invest in the purchase of larger amounts of cotton gauze for production.

Patrizia has been selling through NOVICA since 2011. This is her story:

"I was born in Italy, but I fell in love with Guatemala, its people and culture; which motivated me to settle here in 2001. I began meeting people in the world of fashion design and was fortunate to become friends with one of Guatemala's most famous designers, who has been like a mentor to me. I'm always observant of styles and trends in international fashions, which I've blended with the colors and traditions of Guatemala. I am very serious about helping the environment, so I also recycle fabrics and other materials.

"Many thanks for supporting Guatemalan arts and crafts. This microcredit offers us the opportunity to purchase larger amounts of materials to continue production."
