"The pride of every African woman is to have a child," Emmanuel Atiemoh Yeboah says. Cradled in loving arms, a baby basks in his mother's love. Yeboah works in oils on calico, adding cutouts of batik cloth for their gowns, framing it with ceiba wood.
Emmanuel Atiemoh Yeboah has received 6 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $200 and the most recent for $300. Proceeds were used to stock up on calico, batik fabrics and other materials to create new works.
