Jariya's story

Jariya is an artisan in Thailand who specializes in modern Thai apparel. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of cotton as well as hire additional weavers for her workshop. She has been selling through NOVICA since 2007. This is her story:

"I share my love for art with my brother. He began designing cotton clothing and received awards and recognition. One day he invited me to join him and when he saw I had developed my own skills and styles, he left me in charge. My designs focus on using natural materials and traditional techniques. We use the method of coiling thread to decorate many of our designs. It is made by hand by people from nearby villages."

"This microcredit will allow me to offer work to artisans and tailors in our village, and they support their families with this work. Through Novica, sales have been good and our weavers are happy, as this gives them security. Now I'd like to grow the workshop as well as buy cotton to increase my stock of finished items. This microcredit will help a lot because I don't have enough capital at the moment. Thank you!"
