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.
