Mohamed has been hard at work with his provisions shop, where he sells many items. The front of his shop is used as a fast food area, where he fixes oats, tea, fried egg with bread, etc. With this 110,000 Liberian dollar (LRD) loan he was able to buy more inventory (milk, rice, Argo oil, toothpaste, etc) for his shop. He says he has been running this business since 2005. He enjoys the flow of his customers and his daily sales. The problem he is facing is that he is trying to open another branch.
Mohamed is 45 years old and lives in Compound #3. He is married with four children between the ages of 3 and 15, all of whom live at home. His plan is to have more shops and to educate his children.
