Nengah's story

Nengah is an Indonesian artisan who specializes in hand-carved sculptures. He would like to invest in new tools and equipment, including an airbrush and a sander, as well as wood and finishing materials.

Nengah has been selling through NOVICA since 2004. This is his story:

"From an early age I loved natural things: plants, animals, birds, or sea life. When I was still quite young I knew I had an ability to translate nature into artful things of beauty. Although I have no formal art training and work purely from my own inspiration and intuition, I know what looks good and what doesn't look right in a carving. I particularly want to create wildlife and other animal themes in an exact, realistic, and original way."

A message from Nengah: "Many thanks to all of you for offering me this microcredit, because it will let me prepare a good stock for the holiday season, and this will greatly benefit my business and make it grow. Thank you, all my lovely customers; without you my business cannot grow."
