From a humble artist to a respected member of her community, Zandra captures the spirit of the Women's Empowerment badge. "After my husband died in 2017, I knew I would need to provide for my three children. I've made their education my top priority and plan to send each of them to university. I have also welcomed helpers into my workshop, and support with fair wages," she says.
Zandra started off as a humble artisan with a strong passion. Since her start with NOVICA, she has been able to grow her workshop and achieve more than she thought possible. She is able to support her children, create jobs in her community, and has become one of the most respected artisans in her city.
Zandra lost her husband in 2017 and she is now the sole provider for her three children — Fabricio, Alejandro and Dulce. Through her jade jewelry art, she is able to support her children and increase their livelihood.
Zandra financially supports her three children's education and plans to send the three of them to university as well.
This artist positively impacts their community through job creation and provides jobs for 2 or more people.
I like this rectangular pendant because it is just simple...not too busy...the artisan left to dominate this beautiful green jade stone. Perfectly done,cut and polish.
- I use it as a bracelet
