Wijayana's story

Wijayana is an artisan who specializes in sterling silver and gemstone jewelry. He would like to purchase raw materials in bulk, including silver and semi-precious gemstones.

Wijayana has been selling through NOVICA since 2012. This is his story:

"When I was 10 years old, my parents, who are master silversmiths, told me to learn about making jewelry. I love this job! The nicest part of my jewelry is the uniqueness of its style. That it shows an ethnic influence makes it quite different."

"I would like to say thank you to everyone who has supported me through these microcredit loans. It really helps me to expand my sales, make new designs and craft more jewelry. I need the capital to buy raw materials so that I can have all of the jewelry designs in my catalog on hand and available for purchase. Thank you!"
