A loan of $2,000 helps to invest in a bulk purchase of silver and gemstones.
Ayu is an artisan from Indonesia who specializes in handcrafted sterling silver jewelry. Ayu has been selling through NOVICA since 2019. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of silver and gemstones. This is her story:
"I was born in Tampaksiring in Gianyar, Bali. After high school, I married my husband. He is a great bone carver. He introduced me to the art of bone carving. After learning the technique and practicing a lot, I started making jewelry from bone. I am mostly inspired by nature and the culture that surrounds me. I'd like to thank-you for this loan. I will use this loan wisely to develop my business, replenish my products and also buy supporting materials. Other than that, I will use this to repair my tools because they are too old to produce items. Once again, thank you for your help. May God bless you."
