Wayan's story

Wayan is a Balinese artisan who specializes in handcrafted jewelry. He would like to invest in the purchase of sterling silver for production. Wayan has been selling through NOVICA since 2000. This is his story: "I started to learn at the age of fifteen, as an apprentice in my village. After five years, I started on my own to produce original pieces that I sold to local shops. And slowly I was able to save enough money to make my own workshop at home, where I work still until this day. I am the eldest of three children from a family of artists, but I was the first in my family to work with silver. "Thank you so much to everyone for your support through this microcredit. It will ease my efforts in preparing a replenishment stock. This microcredit will see my sales increase from year to year. Thank you so much."
