Robert's story

Robert is an artisan from Ghana who specializes in wood carvings and jewelry. He would like to invest in a purchase of power tool accessories.

Robert has been selling through NOVICA since 2006. This is his story.

Robert says, "I am a self-taught artist. I never took any classes or attended courses. I use manual tools to carve my pieces from wood and then I paint them myself.

"I enjoy working alone, and my inspiration comes from nature. One of my favorite things in life is to explore nature and spending time with my wife and two daughters. One of my dreams for the near future is to become an art lecturer, even though I was never able to go to art class myself.

"I appreciate you all for your immense support over the years through these loans. May God richly bless you."
