A loan of $2,850 helped to invest in a bulk purchase of alpaca wool.


Alfredo's story

Alfredo is an artisan from Peru who specializes in alpaca apparel and accessories. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of alpaca wool.

Alfredo has been selling through NOVICA since 2001. This is his story:

"When I was but a small child, I learned from my parents the best weaving techniques. Like me, they had learned from their own parents. This makes us a family entirely devoted to the world of textiles, and we have been for generations. Nowadays I combine knitting techniques, remaining true to Inca and colonial motifs."

"I will use this microcredit to purchase the wool I need to build up my collection ahead of the holiday rush. Buying in bulk makes a huge difference for me, as it ensures that I will be able to acquire all of the colors I need, including those that are in high demand. Many thanks to all of you."
