Made's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy silver and gemstones for her jewellery making.
Made is an artisan who specializes in silver and gemstone jewellery. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of silver and gemstones. Made has been selling through NOVICA since 2002. This is her story: Made comes from a village long renowned as Bali's center of silver production. "My father was one of the senior silversmiths, well trained in the jewellery 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 other silversmiths in our village, and we specialize in traditional motifs and designs." "To craft more jewellery, I need some additional capital to buy silver and gemstones. I am really thankful for the support. This really makes me happy and grateful as it can help to improve my business. It enhances my creativity and spirit, too. We will always work hard to create great pieces of jewellery with our hands, and our customers' satisfaction is our pride. Thank you very much for being with me, to walk in this path together."
