Details

Ghanaian artist Abdul Aziz Mohamadu has always had an affinity for art, often painting for friends and neighbors by request. It was with carving wood that his passions were truly piqued, and this joy shines through in this beautifully articulate figurine he names Ikenna, which is a Nigerian name. After carving the sculpture, beads of recycled glass and acrylic paint are used to add dimension and color.

Since he started working with NOVICA, he has been able to grow his business. Through NOVICA and his determination, every day he gets a little closer to his goal of empowering and training others in carving.

Abdul Aziz Mohamadu has received 10 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $500 and the most recent for $5000. Proceeds were used to pay for improvements to his workshop.
