Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 40-year-old Mohamed from Lumley in Freetown. He is married with two children between the ages of two and 18 years, one of whom attends school. For the past ten years, Mohamed has been running a welding shop in a busy market area. He works at his business 26 days a month for ten hours a day and has four employees working for him. He does not have any other sources of income. He faces problem like debts owed to him by customers.
Mohamed has requested a loan to buy more welding machines. The extra income from this loan will allow him to improve his standard of living and educate his child. In the future, he plans to increase his savings and open a welding center to train youths. He thanks you for your support!
