Beloved around the world, Santa Claus is also present in West Africa, where some adults dress as Father Christmas, or "Papa Bronya." This is especially popular at events and parties, as Santa is the one who hands out gifts. Ali Mohammed depicts the benevolent character as a sculpture, carved by hand of sese wood with applications of clay to give it an aged look.
Ali financially supports the education of two of his own children and two others in primary school.
Ali Mohammed has received 6 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $200 and the most recent for $2000.
