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 chains and beads.

Sarote's story

Sarote is an artisan from Thailand who specializes in wood and silver jewelry. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of silver chains and beads.

Sarote has been selling through Novica since 2012. This is his story.

"I enjoy using natural materials to create jewelry. I also love to design and find ways to make my designs work" says Sarote. "I'm from Bangkok, and when I moved to Chiang Mai I decided to start my own workshop at home and work on my designs. I studied how to bake the wood dry to prevent the expansion or contraction, and after that, I focused on attaching it to the silver. I enjoyed finding a way to solve this obstacle by myself! Because of material cost increases and the outbreak of COVID-19, it causes us lack of financial liquidity and exacerbates us in all ways. This microcredit is totally useful for us to keep things going. Thank you."
