A loan of $300 helped to invest in the purchase of fine silver and jade for production.


Pedro's story

Guatemalan artisan Pedro specializes in handcrafted jewelry. He would like to invest in the purchase of fine silver and jade for production.

Pedro has been selling through NOVICA since 2011. This is his story:

"When I was 20, I began working in a silver workshop and my passion for making handcrafted jewelry was born. I specialized in engraving silver and have had my own workshop since 1980; it's a simple place, but I have all the tools and space I need to work. I am very grateful for this wonderful opportunity you are giving me and my artisan community in Guatemala."

"I am grateful for this microcredit because it enables me to continue working at my craft. Your support through this microcredit has been very useful, and I would like to thank you on behalf of all Guatemalan artisans. Having access to a microcredit is a wonderful opportunity for us, and I also hope you like the products we craft thanks to this. Please receive my most heartfelt thanks."
