A loan of $300 helped to purchase raw materials in bulk.

Evelyn's story

Evelyn is an artisan who specializes in traditional West African masks. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of raw materials such as wood, metal plates and paints.

Evelyn has been selling through NOVICA since 2008. This is her story:

"My greatest inspiration is to preserve our rich cultural heritage. Initially, I wasn't using a lot of different materials, but now I use recycled glass and glass beads, aluminum, brass and more. I sit and draw a mask creatively, and come up with the colors that will make it stand out."

"I believe that this microcredit will help me create a bigger stock of products and increase sales. My sincere gratitude to all of you for participating in the funding of this microcredit."
