A loan of $200 helped to invest in the purchase of sterling silver and jade to increase production.


Pedro's story

Pedro is a Guatemalan artisan who specializes in handcrafted silver jewelry. He would like to invest in the purchase of sterling silver and jade to increase production.

Pedro has been selling through NOVICA since 2011. This is his story:

"When I was 20, I began working in a silver workshop and my passion for making handcrafted jewelry was born. I specialized in engraving silver and have had my own workshop since 1980; it's a simple place, but I have all the tools and space I need to work. We are very grateful for this wonderful opportunity you are giving me and my artisan community in Guatemala."

"Thank you for supporting artisans from my country. This microcredit offers me the opportunity to continue crafting my jewelry. A big hug to you all - my friends!"
