Joycelyn's story

Joycelyn is an artisan from Ghana who specializes in sterling silver jewelry. She would like to invest in new tools and equipment for her workshop, including a polisher, torches, and hand files.

Joycelyn has been selling through NOVICA since 2012. This is her story:

"My name means 'bringing heaven to earth' in the language of the Ewe people of Ghana," says Joycelyn. "My parents had to travel miles for me to be born, so my mother has considered me special after that experience. My mother traded in earrings, necklaces, and beads, so I naturally followed up. It has been a challenge working in a male-dominated field; fortunately I am one tough cookie, so I don't get pushed over easily.

"Thank you for helping me grow my business."
