A loan of $475 helped to buy wood as material.

Ni Wayan Sariani's story

Ni Wayan Sariani wants to participate in another loan program with DINARI foundation. This loan is to be used to add her working capital in her business as Sanggah maker. Sanggah is a traditional religious article in Balinese Hinduism faith.

Her business always receives flow of orders of Sanggah every month. In some occasions she even has to reject orders as she cannot secure enough material to make Sanggah. Ni Wayan Sariani is in this business together with her husband who does most of the Sanggah making works.

One Sanggah can be sold for IDR 2 million to IDR 3 million (around USD 190 - USD 285) depending on the complexity of the wood carving works. In one month Ni Wayan and her husband can make one to two Sanggah. If she has more orders then she hires extra helps. From this business Ni Wayan can help the family's economy and they are also able to send their children to school.
