Nengah's story

Nengah is an artisan from Indonesia who specializes in hand-carved wood art. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of wood and paint as well as bring on additional carvers at his workshop.

Nengah has been selling through NOVICA since 2004. This is his story:

"From an early age I loved natural things: plants, animals, birds or sea life. When I was still quite young I knew I had an ability to translate nature into artful things of beauty. Although I have no formal art training and work purely from my own inspiration and intuition, I know what looks good and what doesn't look right in a carving. I particularly want to create wildlife and other animal themes in an exact, realistic and original way."

"Everytime I am able to get a loan it helps me so much! We are constantly trying to create new pieces and for this capital is required. Now we need to build up our inventory to keep up with demand. This loan will allow me to do this. We will need to purchase more raw materials and tools as well as bring on more carvers. Thank you for your continuing help."
