A loan of $700 helped to invest in the purchase of such raw materials as beads and baskets for production.


Wayan's story

Wayan is a Balinese artisan who specializes in batik and beaded baskets and handbags. She would like to invest in the purchase of such raw materials as beads and baskets for production.

Wayan has been selling through NOVICA since 2002. This is her story:

"After I got married I started to learn beadwork techniques from my mother-in-law. Most people in my husband's village earn their living from beadwork. After six months of learning, I was able to create new designs. My favorite designs are flowers, thunder, balls, mountain, stars and many more."

"At the moment it's difficult to obtain the baskets I need for the beadwork, as they are hand-woven in a village on another island. That is why I'm very happy to receive this microcredit, because it will make it possible to buy larger amounts of baskets and beads in advance. My team will be happy and motivated too. Thank you very much for your support."
