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

A loan helped to invest in a bulk purchase of mahogany, sandpaper, and polish to make wood sculptures.

George's story

George is an artisan from Ghana who specializes in wood sculptures. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of mahogany, sandpaper, and polish.

George has been selling through NOVICA since 2000. This is his story:
"My carving is motivated by this: I want to record the events of my time," says George. As an animal rights activist and a committed vegetarian, wildlife plays an integral role in his work. He depicts themes from developing countries as well as comments on the cyclical problem of social confusion and irresolution. He is an observer, struggling to represent the myriad unheard voices that surround him.

"I would like to thank everyone for their assistance throughout these years. God bless you all."
