NOVICA CUTS OUT THE FINANCIAL MIDDLEMEN

  • X

In a climate where the world's most challenged entrepreneurs are subjected to painfully high interest rates, we've cut out all the financial middlemen, and in true NOVICA fashion, we've taken matters into our own hands.

We are proud to have launched the first-ever microfinance website where customers can purchase products and lend money directly to artisans, with loans at 0% interest!

Please share these loan requests

0% Interest for artisans.... are we crazy?! It sounds too good to be true, but this concept is only made possible by our unique ability to cut out the financial middlemen. In addition to dispatching all customer orders, our regional offices across the world can now also serve as disbursement centers for Artisan Loans, providing artisans direct access to the credit they need to grow their businesses.

Also, If we're receiving 0% funds from customers and lenders, we feel we should charge 0% to our participating artisans. Our economic incentive is for each artisan to grow their business and be successful.
