Abdul's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to purchase wood, beads, paint, and polish and to hire additional helpers.


Abdul's story

Abdul's previous loan is nearly paid off. He would like an additional loan to invest in a bulk purchase of wood, beads, paint, and polish and to hire additional helpers.

Abdul has been selling through NOVICA since 2010. This is his story:

"I always knew I wanted to paint, but wasn't sure I could make a living out of it, so I looked into other fields too," recalls Abdul. "I observed master carver Musa at his workshop for a period of time, then I picked up a log of wood and started carving out a mask as I had observed him doing. This surprised Musa and he was willing to help me perfect the skill. I developed a love for this new art, and that's how I eventually became a master carver too!"

"I thank you for the loans you have been giving me. My family and I will ever be grateful to you for injecting more energy into my business. May Allah bless you."
