Ana Cristina's story

Ana Cristina is an artist in Peru who specializes in hand-crafted jewelry. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of silver, leather, and gemstones for her designs. She has been selling through NOVICA since 2005. This is her story:

"Since childhood, I spent most of my time drawing. I had always wanted to learn jewelry design, and I finally took a two-year course. Then I followed my husband, who traveled frequently to Bogota. There I gained experience in jewelry workshops and learned practically every technique. Each stone inspires my designs.

"I would like to thank everyone for their support through this micro credit, which allows us to acquire materials and keep up with demand."
