A loan of $4,000 helped to buy materials and also a machine for soldering his metal art.


Armando's story

Armando and his family are Mexican artisans who transform metal scraps and used car parts into original sculptures. He'd like to buy materials and also a machine for soldering his metal art. Armando has been selling through NOVICA since 2005. This is his story: "I was born in a Mexican town famed for its traditional artistry, but I dreamed of creating something new. As a child I enjoyed inventing toys and soon yearned to create a unique style of art. Environmentally enamored, I now transform recycled goods. I began to craft figures from scrap and discarded mechanical parts, mostly from cars and bicycles. Thanks to the creativity that God gave me, today I have an enjoyable and better way of life." A message from Armando: "Thank you for your concern for artisans like us. Your loan is helping us to have a better life, and you will always be in our prayers."
