Fermin's story

Fermin is a Peruvian artisan who specializes in handcrafted jewelry. He would like to invest in the purchase of silver to increase production.

Fermin has been selling through NOVICA since 2005. This is his story:

"After school, I'd rush to my father's workshop to practice creating my own designs. Jewelry has been all I ever wanted to do, so I saw no point in going to university. I was able to dedicate more time to the workshop when I graduated from high school. We were able to attract more customers then, and the family's business began to increase steadily. My designs are inspired by everything I see around me, and by our ancestors' jewelry."

"I would like to express my gratitude for your support through this microcredit. It will allow me to purchase the silver I need to craft more jewelry to build up my stock, and so increase my sales."
