Patricia's story

Patricia is a Peruvian artisan who specializes in handcrafted jewellery. She would like to invest in the purchase of silver and natural gemstones to continue production.

Patricia has been selling through NOVICA since 2001. This is her story:

"I have worked with a number of crafts in regions throughout Peru. My art is a personal search. I find nourishment in the art of our ancestors, the experience of master artisans and the influence of foreign designers. Craft is my life's passion."

"I wish to thank you from the bottom of my heart for this microcredit. It is very comforting to know that people care about what we do. May God bless you."
