Our Fourteenth Kiva Diva: Sukartini in Bali (May 2015)

Our Fourteenth Kiva Entrepreneur - Sukartini in Bali - April 2015

We’re celebrating our fourteenth “Adventures with the Estrogen Army” Kiva sponsorship a little early, sneaking our May sponsorship in now in order to accommodate something a little different. I’ve enjoyed being able to support independent artists through the National Geographic backed “NOVICA” web site for a number of years, and with their recent partnership with Kiva, I thought it would be fun to back the dreams of women artists this way. So for May, we’re helping Sukartini, an artisan from Indonesia who specializes in handcrafted jewelry, invest in a bulk purchase of silver and gemstones, as well as to hire additional artisans for her workshop. This was exciting because Sukartini is doing something that has long been on my own bucket list, so to be able to invest in her work feels great!
