A loan helped to invest in a bulk purchase of wood beads and waxed cords.

Sumalee's story

Sumalee is an artisan from Thailand who specializes in handcrafted beaded jewelry. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of waxed cord and wooden beads to replenish her stock.

Sumalee has been selling through NOVICA since 2013. This is her story:

Thailand's Sumalee says, "One day, as I was walking on the street, I noted some small wooden beads on a handbag, and I thought that this was a material that is hardly used. I bought a pound of beads and started threading necklaces by hand with bright, noticeable colors. My necklaces are affordable, lightweight and beautiful."

"I thankfully receive this kind of continuous support from you which helps me and my whole team to stand against the pandemic crisis that we all are currently suffering from. Thank you."
