ABOUT THE ARTISANS
The talented artisans that have hand carved this beautiful design take pride in their art. As a part of the Inganzo Cooperative the artisans have used the profit from their wood carving activities to buy small animals such as pigs and hens which they use to supplement their income from the sale of eggs and meat. When they began, all of the members were single. Now many of the men have been able to build homes, marry, and begin families.
On a hill near my father's home and next to my twin brother, I have build my own home with my income from wood carving.
