Made's story

Made is a Balinese artisan who crafts silver and gemstone jewelry, by hand. Made would like to purchase additional sterling silver and gemstones in order to increase production. Made has been selling through NOVICA since 2002. This is her story:

"I come from a village long-renowned as Bali's center of silver production. My father was one of the senior silversmiths, well-trained in the jewelry arts. He taught me from when I was 12 years old until I got married. Though I graduated in anthropology, I decided to set up a workshop with my husband. We are now able to offer employment to more silversmiths in our village, and we specialize in traditional motifs and designs.

"This microcredit is really helpful to increase my stock and provide the capital to work. It is really needed to speed up the supply of items I market on-line. Thank you so much for your help to make this happen."
