Peru's Huaman Paucar Family preserve the ceramic traditions inherited from Inca artisans. They handcraft this stunning vase of ceramic, and then they proceed to paint it with a warm palette of colors as they replicate the patterns that once adorned Inca apparel.
Huaman Paucar Family has received 7 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $900 and the most recent for $400. Proceeds were used to invest in the materials they use so that they can increase pottery production.
This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.
The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.
