A loan of $2,200 helped to purchase silver and gemstones for increased production.

Alfredo's story

Alfredo is an Andean artisan who specializes in Peruvian filigree jewelry. He would like to invest in the purchase of silver and gemstones for increased production.

Alfredo has been selling through NOVICA since 2005. This is his story:

"I come from Catacao in northern Peru. It is considered the City of Filigree. I began to learn this art when I was 11 years old, with friends who taught me little by little. I enjoy it because a jeweler's work is a delicate art. I was awarded a scholarship to study with a professor from Israel and was offered the chance to teach filigree there. But I love Peru too much to leave."

"I would like to express my most heartfelt gratitude to you for taking part in this microcredit. I feel very proud to receive your support. I would like you to know that you'll always receive a quality jewelry piece from me that is lovingly crafted by hand. Many thanks!"
