Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Victor Hugo Lopez has received 6 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $100 and the most recent for $600. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of cedar and cypress woods for production.

Woodworking had been an important aspect of Victor's community for many generations. Victor continues to teach his son and grandson his techniques so they can continue to preserve the craft for generations.

Victor feels blessed to be able to reach so many people without having to leave his country. Most of his income is through NOVICA and he relies on it to provide for his family.

With the help and support of his family, Victor has been able to grow his business and provide a better life for himself and his family.

Victor was recognized for his work and received a scholarship to study microenterprise management in Oregon.

This artist is an elder master and continues to actively practice their craft.

Victor's work was featured in a catalogue of Guatemalan handicrafts.
