Nyoman's story

Balinese artisan Nyoman specializes in handcrafted sterling silver jewelry. He would like to invest in the purchase of such raw materials as silver and natural gemstones to build up his stock.

Nyoman has been selling through NOVICA since 2003. This is his story:

"I began learning to carve wood when I was in elementary school. My grandfather, an architect of traditional Balinese buildings and also a senior carver, was very supportive of me. Then my father introduced me to a leading silversmith in my village, and I began to learn from him. Now I make use of my carving ability when creating silver jewelry."

"Thank you for supporting me through this microloan; with this support I'll be able to have some capital to build up my stock. May life reward you accordingly. Thank you!"
