A loan helped to invest in a bulk purchase of wood and other materials for the business.

Nyoman's story

Nyoman is an artisan from Indonesia who specializes in hand-carved wood sculptures. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of wood and other materials.

He has been selling through Novica since 2004.

This is his story: "My family has worked in wood for many generations, so my father taught my brother and me," recounts Nyoman. "Buddha, traditional, and abstract figures are my source of inspiration. Suar, hibiscus, ebony, and crocodile woods with natural finishes are my common materials. To make or create a new design, it takes me about one and a half months to refine my work little by little until I get the perfect design. This loan allows me to replenish my inventory. Thank you for your kind support. I hope I will be able to sell more and grow my business."
