Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Rafael and his wife work together in their workshop. When his wife was pregnant with their second child, she was diagnosed with cancer. It was a very scary time for their family as the wife couldn't receive treatment or surgery because of the risk of losing the baby. Rafael's wife and their baby both survived and were able to recover and live healthy lives.

Rafael Antonio Zurdo has received 5 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $200 and the most recent for $1100. Proceeds were used to invest in materials for his work, such as jade and sterling silver.

Every purchase from this artist has a profound impact on their livelihood and income.

Rafael eldest is studying tourism and his two younger children are in middle school.

Rafael has three children he supports named Fatima, Paulo, and Saul.

1 Testimonial for Rafael Antonio Zurdo

Wow! Amazing craftsmanship! I have both the ""Lord of the Land"" ring and now the ""Royal Maya"" ring. Rafael is amazing. These are second to none in their beauty. I will continue to follow his talent and undoubtedly purchase more of his artwork, a.k.a. jewelry.... Wow.... Novica - spectacular place to shop.
