Nengah's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to invest in a bulk purchase of wood and paint, bring on additional carvers at his workshop, and purchase tools and equipment.


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, bring on additional carvers at his workshop, and purchase tools, including carving tools, a compressor, a grinder, a drilling machine and a cut-off saw machine.

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. I particularly want to create wildlife and other animal themes in an exact, realistic and original way."

"Each year as my business grows we depend on the financial backing that these microcredit loans provide. This year in particular we have expanded our workshop and need additional equipment to keep up with the increased demand for our products. Expansion is always costly and with the money I can borrow through this system it makes these challenges must easier for my business to continue. These loans enable me to grow my business. Without them, I couldn't really do this. Thank you for all your help."
