Frank's story

Frank is a wood-carver from Ghana who specializes in African masks and sculptures. He would like to invest in the purchase of raw materials such as wood, aluminum plate, sandpaper, paints and brushes. Frank has been selling through NOVICA since 2005. This is his story: "I have exhibited my work in the United States and in Germany. I used to assist a master carver at his workshop and I used to ask him so many questions! His answer was always the same: 'Just learn – this is a good skill to have.' I now have apprentices under my care. I think I have a sense of intuition with this art, and whenever it comes, I take advantage of it and put it to work. "I thank the sponsors for their support and for this microcredit. I pray that they keep on with this initiative, which they are offering to some of us."
