Eka's story

Eka is an artisan from Indonesia who specializes in wood carvings. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of wood. Eka has been selling through NOVICA since 2010. This is her story:

Eka is inspired by her children and family. "I was introduced to Novica by my husband Putra Suteja. Unfortunately he passed away in 2009 after a long illness, leaving me with a 3 year old daughter and a 10 day old son. I decided to honor his memory by continuing carving, something I learnt from my father from a very young age. My children are my biggest motivation to work. I always keep my spirit up and go on strong for my children. Thanks to them I do not falter, and thanks to all of you for always supporting me and for encouraging me to develop new ideas and designs for sculptures so they will always be liked."

"Thank you for all of your support. This microcredit will help me prepare some new designs. I never stop making new creations because that is how I can share my spirit with others."
