Nyoman's story

Nyoman is an artisan from Indonesia who specializes in silver, gold, and gemstone jewelry. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of silver and gemstones.

Nyoman has been selling through Novica since 2015. This is his story:

"My mother and my sisters walked about three kilometers to fetch a gallon of water while my father and I would go looking for firewood," says Nyoman as he shares his life's story. "One day I made small wooden beads which I strung into a bracelet. It wasn't perfect but the jewelry idea was there and my father was very proud. Due to our economic situation I experienced many hardships, and yet I got a scholarship to work with a famous jewelry designer. After working there for 21 years I decided to explore my dream and talent, so I started creating jewelry on my own."

"I am thankful to be given another chance to earn microcredit. It helps me a lot to add my working capital, it also supports neighbors who work with me. Thank you to all funders; may all of us be blessed with a better future."
