A loan of $4,000 helps to invest in a bulk purchase of wood and other materials for his wood sculptures.


Yudi's story

Yudi is an artisan from Indonesia who specializes in hand-carved wood sculptures. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of wood and other materials. Yudi has been selling through NOVICA since 2018. This is his story:

Yudi says, "My father is a wood sculptor. He taught me how to choose good woods, carve and finish them. Sadly, the young generation today rarely wants to carry on with Bali's sculpture traditions. This is why I was especially interested in learning. I am inspired by my surroundings, from animals and trees, to our Balinese culture. My designs are different because I combine benalu wood with other shapes that make each image unique."

"Hello, I am very grateful to all of you for your support in lending me funds. The funds will be used to replenish our stock, so hopefully we can improve our business."
