Made's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to invest in a bulk purchase of silver.

Made's story

Made is an artisan from Indonesia who specializes in carved bone and leather jewelry. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of silver.

Made has been selling through NOVICA since 2015. This is his story:

"While I was in junior high, I became a woodcarver and kept practicing that craft until I finished high school. Then I learned to carve horn, bone and wood. Being responsible for my small family has encouraged me to work harder and my wife and a few family members help me. We handcraft jewelry from materials such as horn, bone, beads and wood. We only use traditional tools like scissors, hammers, knives and chisels. I design unique pieces which are inspired by Bali's art, culture and traditions.

"I would like to thank those who support me through this loan. I will use it as working capital to build up my stock for the holiday season. Thank you for your kind support."
