The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.

Nancy took many courses to learn the art of jewelry but fell in love with filigree. The delicate curvilinear lines of this unique style of silverwork are part of the cultural heritage of Northern Peru. Filigree jewelry is worn with many traditional costumes and a Marinera may not be danced without wearing filigree earrings. Nancy teaches filigree to her employees and others who seek her out asking to learn this art.

Working with Novica brings Nancy a confidence that she previously struggled to find. Her Novica sales are steady and she has been able to find not only the belief that she will succeed but the steady income that she needs to survive.

Nancy pays for her daughter's education. Her assistants also have children and are able to educate them with the income from their jobs.

Nancy Quispe has received 5 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $200 and the most recent for $1000.

Nancy now employs a man and a woman to help her. They each have children and are able to support them with their workshop earnings.

Nancy won third place for innovation in filigree work at the national competition Patronato de Plata del Peru.

This artist has dramatically improved their livelihood by working with NOVICA.

Nancy and her husband support their seven year old daughter.

"Beautiful"

This is a delicate but striking pendant. I hope my friend will enjoy it. I might substitute a longer chain if I were wearing it.
