Cesar's story

Cesar is a Peruvian artisan who creates beautiful sculptures with natural Andean gemstones. He plans to buy stones and other raw materials he needs to increase production. Cesar has been selling through NOVICA since 2003. This is his story: "I have worked as a stone carver since 1988. Of my four children, my oldest girl shows the most interest in my art and even assists me. I work with serpentine, rose manganese, calcite, celestite, red jasper, mottramite, chrysocolla, rhodochrosite and quartz. I work in stone because of the beautiful things that can be made with each kind. I like stone's naturalness and purity of color." "To all of you who are assisting me with this loan, I send you blessings. You are helping make it possible for me to increase my sales and provide a better future for my children, which is my greatest desire. Thank you!"
