I have one 75 dollar gift certificate to giveaway to one reader from the generous elves at NOVICA, a company that works in association with National Geographic to bring you handcrafted artisan products from all over the world.
NOVICA. The World is Your Market.
NOVICA also offers artisan loans!
For many years, Novica artisans have asked us if we could help them get loans so they could expand. We tried everything. We connected them with financial institutions. We introduced them to local banks. We even introduced them to microfinance institutions. But, unfortunately, most artisans could not obtain loans, and when they did, the interest rates were very high.
In the Novica spirit, we cut out all the financial middlemen and took the matter into our own hands!
We’re launching the first-ever microfinance website where customers can purchase products and lend money directly to artisans. And with no middlemen involved in the process, our Artisan Loans will carry 0% interest.
I ordered these gorgeous olive wood trays that are handmade in Peru and built to resemble the canoes of the Amazon river. I also did my Christmas shopping – but can’t show you what I bought because the recipients read my blog!
