A loan of $300 helped to purchase larger quantities of silver to increase production.

Dario's story

Dario is an artisan in Peru who specializes in handcrafted jewelry. He would like to purchase larger quantities of silver to increase production.

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

"I began helping out in a jewelry workshop when I was 15, during school vacations. Little by little, this activity became a passion. I realized how much I enjoyed working with meticulous details and eventually found a great deal of satisfaction in creating jewelry that people liked. Beauty can be expressed in different forms and manners. The challenge for a country like Peru is to get ahead little by little, despite the many difficult circumstances that exist. It's important that people appreciate the art of jewelry, as many don't value the effort it requires."

"We all need a helping hand once in a while, and it is nice to know we can always count on a friendly hand. Thank you so much for your support through this microcredit - please receive a big hug across the miles!"
