Ewurabena's story

Ewurabena specializes in handcrafted bracelets. She would like to stock up on materials such as wooden bangles and batik fabrics.

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

"Ewurabena is a Fante name that literally means 'Lady Abena,' and Abena is a name given to females born on Tuesday. My mother taught me how to sew and it came in handy when I had to put myself through school. I trained at a fashion school and I started designing and sewing clothes for men and women, using African wax print fabrics. I later developed a line of jewelry and accessories using swaths from the clothes I made."

"I would like to thank those who are contributing to this microcredit that will help grow my business. Your support is greatly appreciated."
