A loan helped to invest in a bulk purchase of wood beads and waxed cords.


Sumalee's story

Sumalee is an artisan from Thailand who specializes in handcrafted beaded jewelry. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of wood beads and waxed cords. Sumalee has been selling through NOVICA since 2013.

This is her story:

Thailand's Sumalee says, "One day, as I was walking on the street, I noted some small wooden beads on a handbag, and I thought that this was a material that is hardly used. I bought a pound of beads and started threading necklaces by hand with bright, noticeable colors. My necklaces are affordable, lightweight and beautiful."

"I appreciate your support through this loan, as it allows me to continue building up my business."
