Kadek's story

Kadek is a Balinese artisan who specializes in handcrafted jewelry. He would like to invest in the purchase of raw materials such as sterling silver and gemstones to increase production.

Kadek has been selling through NOVICA since 2006. This is his story:

"I was literally born into the world of jewelry-making. My parents and most people in my neighborhood are silversmiths. My parents used to say, if you make something, don't use only your hands but also all of your heart. This way everything you make will have spirit."

"Thank you for funding this micro-credit, because by purchasing the raw materials I need, production can increase and sales improve. This makes it easier for me to continue paying the artisans in my team in a timely manner."
