Wayan's story

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

Wayan has been selling through NOVICA since 2000. This is his story:

Under the tutelage of his uncle, Balinese artisan Wayan has fine-tuned his skills to become one of the most talented and innovative craftsmen in his village. "I am the eldest of three children from a family of artists, but I was the first in my family to work with silver."

"I want to send my biggest gratitude for the opportunity to receive this loan. This amazing support helps me grow my small business and provide continuous employment to the silversmiths who work with me. Thank you so much for your support, and may God bless you."
