A loan helped to invest in silver and gemstones for her designs.
Made is an Indonesian artisan who crafts beautiful Balinese-style silver and gemstone jewelry. She would like to invest in silver and gemstones for her designs. She has been selling through NOVICA since 2002. This is her story: "I come from a village long renowned as Bali's center of silver production. My father was one of the senior silversmiths, well-trained in the jewelry arts. He taught me from when I was 12 years old until I got married. Though I graduated in anthropology, I decided to set up a workshop with my husband. We are able to offer employment to more silversmiths in our village, and we specialize in traditional motifs and designs." "I am so happy and want to say many thanks for helping me improve my work and better our lifestyle. The microcredit loan is really helpful to be able to increase our production. I appreciate this so much!"
