Putu's loan finished fundraising,
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 and gemstones to make more jewelry.

Putu's story

Putu is an artisan from Indonesia who specializes in sterling silver jewelry. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of silver and gemstones.

Putu has been selling through NOVICA since 2006. This is her story:

Putu comes from a long lineage of silversmiths. "My parents and grandparents are quite well known and are highly regarded. Inspired by my family's spirit and their great support, I decided to venture on my own and design sterling silver jewelry in both traditional and modern styles."

"I would like to say thank you for helping me. Through this loan, I hope I can buy supporting materials and develop my business by designing more beautiful designs. I hope people feel blissful to wear my products. God bless all of you."
