"Very NICE!!!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have never been to India but I feel like I have a piece of it now. When I was in first grade, my teacher described going to the Taj Mahal and the stone inlay work. She didnt have any good pictures but her description has always intrigued me. This plate make me feel like I understand it now! Its wonderful what a teacher can do! Her description stayed with me for forty years, and finally I see! This makes me want to go to India. Thank you!

"A Way to Remember our Trip to India"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Having just returned from India in November with a friend, we toured a marble factory while there. The candle holder made a perfect Christmas gift for my friend as it looked as well as the ones being made in the factory at very high prices. It was especially nice as the title reminded us of seeing Agra and the Taj Mahal.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Novica sales are instrumental to this family's survival, accounting for 50 percent of their monthly income. They are a dedicated family of artisans who continually struggle to make ends meet.

Raja Ram is from Agra, home to the Taj Mahal. Like many in Agra, he learned the art of marble carving and inlay at an early age. Years later when his children were grown, he taught this art to his wife, Raj Kumari. They love this centuries-old intricate Indian craft and hope that their children and grandchildren continue it.

Raja Ram has a daily struggle to manage his chronic diabetes. It has impacted his work and the income from his workshop is diminishing. He and his wife struggle to make ends meet.

Raj Kumari and Raja Ram has received 3 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $500 and the most recent for $400.

Raj and Raja's son is grown and educated but Raj and Raja now help with the educational expenses of their two grandchildren.

The income from their workshop provides for the entire family, which includes their son and two grandchildren.

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