A loan of $400 helped to purchase raw materials such as sterling silver and natural gemstones.

Komang's story

Komang is a jewelry artisan from Bali who specializes in silver and gemstone jewelry. To continue production, he would like to invest in the purchase of raw materials such as sterling silver and natural gemstones.

Komang has been selling through NOVICA since 2012. This is his story:

"I was born in Celuk, renowned as the birthplace of silversmiths. When I was 10 years old, my parents, who are master silversmiths, told me to learn about making jewelry because someday, when I got older, I'd be able to make a living from this skill. I enjoyed creating new designs for my parents. I like drawing and I came up with a variety of jewelry designs. I even earned some money with this. I love this job! The nicest part of my jewelry is the uniqueness of its style. Although it shows an ethnic influence, it's different from other Balinese jewelry."

"I want to say thanks to all of you for supporting my work through this microcredit. I still have to prepare more stock, and I need a bit of support for this so I can buy materials. I hope that this opportunity will allow me to continue growing."
