A loan of $2,850 helped to purchase a diamond saw and stone polisher for their jewelry.


Pedro's story

Pedro, his wife, and three children are Guatemalan silversmiths specializing in jade and sterling silver jewelry. They would like to purchase a diamond saw (used for cutting jade) as well as a stone polisher.

Pedro and his family have been selling through NOVICA since 2010. This is their story:

"After working for silversmiths for six years, we decided to open our own workshop. We are all involved in the family business. We've developed a good working relationship. Everyone specializes in a different aspect and we complement each others' work."

"Cutting and polishing jade is the most laborious part of our work, which is why we appreciate your microcredit very much. It will allow us to purchase the equipment we need to replace the old ones that keep breaking down and slowing down our work."
