A loan of $200 helped to buy supplies for his craft business.

Gordon's story

Gordon is an artisan from Ghana who specializes in hand-carved African masks and sculptures. He would like to buy raw materials like wood, polish, sandpaper, and wood stain for his craft business.

Gordon has been selling through NOVICA since 2000. This is his story:

"I was unable to finish secondary school because of economic limitations. After being taught how to carve by my brother, I moved to the city to seek new opportunities. After a while, I returned to my home city and established my workshop there, receiving indispensable moral support from my brother.

I am very grateful for your support through this microcredit loan. Thank you!"
