A loan of $900 helped to purchase tools and a polishing machine for his workshop.


Marco's story

Marco is a Peruvian artisan who specializes in metal art for decor as well as function. He would like to purchase tools and a polishing machine for his workshop.

Marco has been selling through NOVICA since 2006. This is his story:
"From the time I was a boy, I was inclined toward design. As a teenager, I studied maintenance mechanics and what I learned there enabled me to work and to depict my own ideas in metal. My specialty is working in cold metal. I try to make the most of materials that others usually discard. Nothing is junk – I can use everything."

A message from Marco: "Thank you all for taking part of this microcredit, and for supporting artisans around the world. With these funds I'll be able get the tools I need to increase production, as well as to work on the new designs I have in mind. Thank you so much!"
