A loan of $800 helped to invest in a bulk purchase of natural jade and fine silver for his jewelry.


Pablo's story

Pablo is a Guatemalan artisan who specializes in handcrafted jade and sterling silver jewelry. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of natural jade and fine silver.



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



Pablo dreamed of being an artisan since he was a little boy. "My first piece of traditional silverwork was a Maya design bracelet with quetzal birds, crafted when I was 11. Today, I dream of being able to pass on to my daughter an art that has been in our family for several generations."



"Thank you very much for your microcredit. It is very difficult for us artisans to have enough capital to invest in our own businesses. Your microcredit represents an easier and much safer way to do it. Thank you for your trust."
