"beautiful and functional"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have trouble throwing away magazines that I have not yet read, and they tend to stack up in untidy piles. Now I have a beautiful solution in this lovely magazine rack that sits in my living room as an eye-catching accessory. It is sturdy but light weight and holds many magazines

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Oscar suffered from depression and worry about not being able to support his family. He would walk the streets, going door to door to try to sell his products. His income has increased more than three times since joining Novica and he is now able to rely on the sales of his products to pay for household essentials and to support his daughters' educations.

Since the introduction of handcrafted leather by the Spaniards during the colonial period, Peruvian culture has added its own twist with cultural designs and local materials. Oscar uses the traditions of handcrafted leather in his work, keeping the technique alive for future generations to enjoy.

Oscar Pastor has received 9 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $600 and the most recent for $2400. Proceeds were used to purchase of leather and hardwoods such as mohena, cedar, and tornillo, as well as in paints, sealers, and lacquer.

Oscar's sales help provide and support his two daughters' education, giving them access to opportunities they didn't have before.

Oscar treasures his two daughters, Cheli and Maria Jose, and he does everything he can to provide a better life for them.

Oscar uses his steady income from NOVICA to pay for daily essentials and support the education of his girls.

Oscar provides jobs to young people entering the workforce and helps them explore their own unique talents.
