Buana's story

Buana is an artisan from Indonesia who specializes in handmade jewelry. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of silver and gemstones.

Buana has been selling through NOVICA since 2006. This is his story:

"My enthusiasm for silver jewelry crafting started when I was still in the 6th grade. Once I was around 15, I was finally able to create jewelry by myself. I married a woman I've loved since junior high school, and we have been blessed with two daughters and a son. The period shortly after we married was our most difficult. The economy wasn't good at all. Many people took my silver jewelry but didn't pay, and I had to sell my work door to door. Since joining you in 2006, a lot has changed in my life. I now own a house where my family and I live, and this has been completely life-changing. One thing I can do to repay this, is to give you my very best work."

"With gratitude, I thank all funders who provide me this support. I will use it to replenish my stock. It will also helps me provide work for my employees."
