A loan of $200 helped to invest in the purchase of more local wood and polish.


Wilson's story

Wilson is an artisan in Ghana who specializes in carving traditional masks. He would like to invest in the purchase of more local wood and polish.

Wilson has been selling through NOVICA since 2004. This is his story:

"I became interested in Ghanaian African carvings when I was a child, so after middle school I learned the trade through a man named Mr. Akoffour. Now I have my own workshop and am training three people. I carve different types of masks and each of them has a meaning. My products are unique and my goal is to create more."

"I thank you all for contributing to this microcredit. It will help me keep in business doing what I love."
