A loan of $400 helped to invest in a purchase of raw materials for his jewelry.


Komang Agus's story

Komang Agus is a Balinese artisan who crafts jewelry by hand using bone and coconut shell. He would like to invest in a purchase of the raw materials he needs to increase his stock and create new designs. Komang Agus has been selling through NOVICA since 2011. This is his story: "The place where I was born is renowned for its alternative jewelry tradition. That is, jewelry crafted with bone, horn, woods, and beads. Growing up here, my creativity and my imagination simply took off. My father is a great wood carver. He taught me a lot and was very patient with me. Now I use those techniques to carve different materials such as bone and horn, too." "I am so glad to receive your trust by way of this microcredit. My plan is to use it toward increasing my stock and crafting new designs that will please my customers. Thank you for this great opportunity!"
