Isidoro's story

Isidoro is a Peruvian artisan who specializes in hand-loomed alpaca throws, apparel and accessories. He would like to invest in the purchase of larger quantities of alpaca yarn to increase production.

Isidoro has been selling through NOVICA since 2006. This is his story:

"I was forced to migrate in the 1970s when terrorist activities swept this region. I found a job as janitor in a textile factory. I was completely fascinated! At night, when everyone had gone, I began to experiment with the looms. The manager caught me and said I should start by learning how to assemble a loom. That was the beginning of a vocation, a great gift that I have now also passed on to my children.

"I would like to express to all of you my sincere gratitude for this micro-credit. We want to build up our stock of materials and finished products. Please receive a heartfelt hug and thanks all the way from Peru!"
