Closing the Loop
We went on our first Taaluma field trip that didn't require our fabric-hunting eyes. This time, we went to the small town of Sukawati, Indonesia and connected with artisans who received microloans from YOUR totes. From wood carvers to painters to silver smiths, these artisans use your loans to start and grow their small businesses.
Take wood carver Ketut for example.
He welcomed us into his carving-filled compound...
And gave us a taste of Indonesia's artistic perfection--leaving us bright-eyed for artisans and bushy-tailed for microloans!
As if that weren't enough, the field trip ended with a two thumbs up Hindu approval on the way out the door!
So with a big Thanksgiving "thank you" from Ketut, here’s to closing the loop and feeling good—cause after all it's Friday!
