Working with beads and discs of recycled plastic, Ghanaian artisan Tina Quaye creates an eco-friendly stretch bracelet. Black in color, this bracelet makes a statement for environmental responsibility. The artisan names this accessory Tutum Yefe, which means "black is beautiful" in Akan.
Tina Quaye has received 3 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $200 and the most recent for $200. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of larger quantities of stone, silver, wood and bone beads.
