Godfred's story

Godfred is an artisan from Ghana who specializes in hand-carved wood masks. He would like to invest in the purchase of raw materials and equipment and tools for his workshop, including a gas lamp, a sander, and a drill. Godfred has been selling through NOVICA since 2010. This is his story: "Due to financial constraints, my parents could not further my education, and so I had to drop out of school and join my uncle, who was a wood carver. Thanks to the woodcarving, I've been able to educate my four children, and I know that with constant sales, I'll be able to give them a brighter future than I had. This motivates me to wake up each day to carve!" "I say thank you to everyone who will help fund this loan for me." Use the link below to view Godfred's hand-carved wood masks on the NOVICA site:
