A loan of $200 helped to make a bulk purchase of wool and dyes.

Fermin's story

Fermin specializes in weaving rugs. He would like to make a bulk purchase of wool and dyes to increase production.

Fermin has been selling through NOVICA since 2010. This is his story:

"My two brothers and I learned to weave on a traditional loom. I was ten when I began to weave with my father and, when I was 14, I became independent. We had little looms made to our size where we wove narrow textiles. Today, I weave rugs of wool and cotton. I have my own workshop at home and we all weave on handlooms powered by foot pedals. I enjoy designing and weaving new rug styles, a tradition in my town handed down for generations."

"Thank you for supporting my work through this microcredit. This is such a great opportunity, as it is often difficult to have enough funds to buy the quality materials I need in larger quantities and at a better price. May God bless you all."
