A loan of $150 helped to invest in raw material such as wood for his works.

Pande's story

Pande is a Balinese artisan who carves wonderfully realistic animal sculptures. He would like to invest in raw material such as wood for his works.

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

"I was born in a village well known for woodwork, and learned the art of woodcarving with my uncle. My favorite themes are the eagle and owl. It's a pleasure to be able to preserve such an animal in a carving. Animal sculptures are a great alternative, rather than endangering an animal's life by locking it up in a cage."

A message from Pande: "Thank you so much for your trust in funding this loan so I can buy wood and be ready for holiday season sales. To be prepared, I need capital to buy supplies and start production. I am happy and thankful for this opportunity, and hope it will help to let us keep working and keep our artworks alive. I hope you like my designs that I carved myself with love. Thank you!"
