A loan of $2,850 helped to buy wood and other materials in bulk.

Rendah's story

Rendah is an artisan who specializes in wood sculptures. He is requesting this loan to make a bulk purchase of wood and other materials. He has been selling through NOVICA since 2000, and this is his story: "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. I am grateful to all of you who support me with this microcredit. I need this loan to buy the wood and materials needed to prepare new stock. I feel each of you is part of my family and happiness, and I hope you will always be happy."
