A loan of $1,100 helped to stock up on wood, lacquers and other materials for their carvings.


German's story

German and his brothers are master woodcarvers, creating relief panels that reflect their deep Christian faith. They hope to stock up on wood, lacquers and other materials for their carvings.

German has been selling through NOVICA since 2003. This is his story:

"My brothers and I were taught the secrets of woodcarving by Salesian priests of the Mato Grosso congregation. We work principally in cedar and mahogany wood, painted with oils. Every piece is an opportunity to express our profound relationship with the Catholic faith. We also choose themes based on Andean culture."

"I want to thank all of you who help us develop this beautiful art. Each piece is created with a message of love. With this microcredit, we'll be able to keep all our designs in stock.
