Eric Danquah carves this impressive walking stick, for in most African nations it represents a status symbol. A person with a walking stick commands respect, implies dignity and above all, an acquired collection of wisdom. Danquah's design features the face of a cobra because "although cobras have small round eyes, they are very fast and intelligent."
Eric Danquah has received 6 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1000 and the most recent for $800. Proceeds were used to purchase wood as well as sandpaper, polish and wood stain for increased production.
