Sukartini's story

Balinese artisan Sukartini specializes in hand crafted jewelry. She would like to buy larger amounts of silver to continue production.

Sukartini has been selling through NOVICA since 2005. This is her story:

"I am proud of my Indonesian heritage. My mother instilled in me the values of a 'Balinese woman,' including how to prepare temple offerings, because almost every day is a ceremonial occasion here. I took courses in other traditional art forms, but my favorite is silver work."

"I need some capital to buy silver to prepare my stock for the holiday season, and this microcredit is a wonderful opportunity. I am glad for this support, as it means I can go on crafting jewelry. Thank you so much; I know this microcredit will keep my business going, and will also help me keep my team of silversmiths working."
