Anna's story

Anna is a Ghanaian designer specializing in hand-carved wood art. She would like to invest in the purchase of wood, aluminum plate, and polish for production.

Anna has been selling through NOVICA since 2011. This is her story:

"I got the opportunity to work as an art vendor and developed an interest in arts and crafts. I sketch the designs on paper, then work closely with skilled artisans as they do the carving. I love that there is no waste of wood. Every small piece of wood can be used to create small creatures. I have trained two people and now provide jobs for ten artisans. My design work helps me pay for my children's education."

I will use this microcredit to craft new items to increase my workshop's production. I thank the contributors for thinking about me."
