A loan helped to invest in a bulk purchase of batik fabric and other materials.

Desak's story

Desak is an artisan from Indonesia who specializes in batik robes and decor accents. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of batik fabric and other materials.

Desak has been selling through NOVICA since 2000. This is her story:

Desak learned how to make batik from Desak Putu Nithi. "When I worked with her, she taught me many things about textiles and hand-painting batik. The thing I like about her is her dedication to her work and her concern for the people working with her. I have built my career step by step. I started by asking my neighbors to come to my place to look at my collection and place orders if they like it. Now, there's so much to do I need the help of several assistants!"

"I would like to thank you for granting me this loan. Of course, I will make the best use of it to manage my business. This loan means a lot to me, especially during this pandemic. With this loan, I can still employ workers who really need their jobs. Hopefully good things will come back to all of you."
