A loan of $2,850 helped to invest in a bulk purchase of raw wood for his carvings.


Rendah's story

Rendah is an artisan from Bali who specializes in hand-carved sculptures. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of raw wood. Rendah has been selling through NOVICA since 2000. This is his story: Rendah's father began teaching him to sculpt when he was a young boy. "Balinese woodcarving touches me very deeply. I have learned a variety of arts in Bali, such as gamelan dance, but carving a piece of wood gives me an incomparable sensation. After I finished school, I studied further because I needed more experience, and the tools and materials I needed were beyond my financial reach. Exploring the abstract world refreshes my mind in creating new carvings." "Thank you, thank you, thank you! Your support through this microcredit means a lot to me because I can increase my work. I hope you'll like my sculptures, too."
