A loan of $700 helped to buy copper and bronze to continue crafting her designs.


Ana Maria's story

Ana Maria is a Peruvian artisan who specializes in handcrafted copper and bronze masks and vases. She needs to buy copper and bronze to continue crafting her designs.

Ana Maria has been selling through NOVICA since 2001. This is her story:

"For 24 years I have dedicated myself to metalwork in the city where I married. My husband is an able jeweler from whom I learned the art of working with silver and plaques. Today we have a small family workshop in which my children are also involved, and we work together with dedication, constantly developing new products. In my work I seek to recover the folklore and joy of the Andean people.

"I'd like to send a big hug and kiss to those of you across the miles who are funding this micro-credit. Many thanks for supporting my work. I want so much to grow as a person and as an artisan!"
