Asmana's story

Asmana is an artisan from Indonesia who specializes in sterling silver jewelry. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of gemstones and silver.

Asmana has been selling through NOVICA since 2003. This is his story:

Asmana learned the silversmith's craft in elementary school. "I opened my own jewelry workshop to design and craft a variety of gold and silver accessories," he says. "Unfortunately, events such as the World Trade Center attacks and the Legian-Kuta bombing have had a very bad impact on Bali's tourism trade, which in turn has affected my work."

"I feel very happy and want to say thanks to all of you for helping me improve my work and lifestyle. The loan will really help me to be able to craft more pieces and build up our sales. I appreciate this so much."
