A loan of $200 helped to purchase metal plates, paints, and polish for his masks.

Victor's story

Victor specializes in traditional West African hand-carved masks. He would like to make a bulk purchase of metal plates, paints, and polish.

Victor has been selling through NOVICA since 2012. This is his story:

"I learned the art of carving from my uncle. I had to stay with my him after my parents separated and he put me through school. It was fascinating to see how a log of wood could be used to create beautiful objects. This, I believe, initiated the desire in me to know and learn more about this art. I have trained several people and continue to train others. I also train students in their second and third year of senior school who visit the workshop."

"I would like to increase my stock of finished masks, so I thank you for supporting my work through this microcredit."
