Buana'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 silver and gemstone as well as new tools. He would also like to bring on additional silversmiths at his workshop.


Buana's story

Buana is an artisan from Indonesia who specializes in handmade jewelry. For this loan, he would like to invest in a bulk purchase of silver and gemstone as well as new tools, including a polishing machine, plate making machine and compressor. He would also like to bring on additional silversmiths at his workshop.

Buana has been selling through NOVICA since 2006. He shares his passion for his art, "I've been surrounded by handicrafts all my life. I am thankful to God for giving me such a great gift so I can make a living for my family. Not much, perhaps, but enough for our simple way of life.

I need to buy raw silver, gemstones and tools so I can continue to increase my sales. I sincerely thank you for this microcredit opportunity. May God bless all of you."
