Evelyn's story

Evelyn is an artisan from Ghana who specializes in African masks. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of raw materials, including wood, beads, brass, aluminum plates, sandpaper, brushes, nails, and glue.

Evelyn has been selling through NOVICA since 2008. This is her story: "My greatest inspiration is to preserve our rich cultural heritage," confides Evelyn. "Initially, I wasn't using lots of different materials, but now I use recycled glass and glass beads, aluminum, brass, and more. I sit and draw the mask creatively, and come up with the colors that will make it stand out."

"Thank you for helping me to replenish my inventory, which I believe will translate into higher sales and allow me to expand my business. I am so, so grateful to you."
