A loan of $800 helped to invest in a bulk purchase of wool yarn for her rugs.


Delfina's story

Mexico's Delfina specializes in hand-loomed Zapotec rugs. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of wool yarn for her rugs.

Delfina has been selling through NOVICA since 2011. This is her story:

Delfina grew up with parents who were Zapotec rug artisans.

"When I was 18, I created my first piece. This is the art my parents dedicated their lives to, and it's what I know best," she says. "Through your support I'm able to preserve a family tradition. I appreciate your microcredit. It helps [us] to keep our dreams alive and continue doing what we love. Thank you."
