Eka's story

Eka is an artisan from Indonesia who specializes in wood carvings. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of wood and other materials.

Eka has been selling through NOVICA since 2010. This is her story:

"I can't believe I have passed the dark-cloudy times, and now I can focus on my children's future, to provide them a better education and life. I believe that because I have been helped by God's hands and supported by all my friends, I can keep working hard so I can feed my children, pay their school fees and also save for their future. The income I get from NOVICA customers also keeps getting better and better. It's been a great help for us, and now we can slowly start to do home improvements, too. Until now, I've been working as a nurse in a hospital while also keeping this business of my husband’s growing."

"To prepare for the holiday season, I really need capital to buy wood and other materials, and I hope to be able to fulfill the stock needed for the holiday season this year.

I am grateful that there are many good souls who support and help me to grow my business, and I am also very happy to be able to help many carvers so that they can fulfill their daily needs in this pandemic time. Thank you so much!"
