A loan of $1,000 helped to stock up on the materials he needs, such as various woods.


Nyoman's story

Nyoman is a Balinese wood carver who specializes in masks and sculptures. He hopes to stock up on the materials he needs, such as various woods. He has been selling through NOVICA since 2000. This is his story: "I was taught to carve by my brother. The traditional forms and poses are of strong beauty and fine workmanship, which inspired me to learn this style. My favorite themes to work on are characters in religious mythology, because they offer a variety of ways for an artist to express creativity and style. What I wish now is to continue upholding the values of those who taught and inspired me, while being able to continue taking very good care of my family and my woodcarving group." "The microcredit loan will let us produce more and help my workshop grow. Your support also will let us offer work to other talented carvers. Thank you for your support and for the loan."
