Wetland Furniture was founded by Karina Nur Arumsari and her partner, Irfanda. The venture about converting water hyacinth (Eichornia crassipes) – an invasive plant that live in water – into something valued goods. They are empowering the women in Desa Bandung, Mojokerto to have a better life. In her spare time, she enjoys going to cinemas and avoiding watching horror! She does love watching romances and reading novels. Sometimes her weekend habit in home is to cook rice for the whole family members *they do love my cook!*. Karina hopes by winning this venture she and Irfanda can do more to our environment and society.
