Anna's story

Anna is an artisan from Ghana who specializes in wood carvings. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of wood, beads and polish.

Anna has been selling through NOVICA since 2011. This is her story:

Ghana's Anna says, "I got the opportunity to work as an art vendor and developed an interest in arts and crafts.

I sketch the designs on paper, then work closely with skilled artisans as they do the carving. I love that there is no waste of wood. Every small piece of wood can be used to create small creatures.

I have trained two people and provide jobs for ten artisans. My design work helps me pay for my children's education.

I thank you for your help, especially at this critical moment when I need to build up my inventory to take advantage of the peak season."
