Carved from native sese wood, an African camel is a symbol of virtue. Daniel Asante carves the animal and paints it by hand. "The strength of the camel is an inspiration" he says. "If the camel can travel days without water, man can also do more with little resources."
Daniel has two grandchildren in elementary school that he supports.
Daniel Asante has received 9 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $300 and the most recent for $600. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of wood, goatskin, polish, and sandpaper for production.
