Mohamed is 46 years old and married with four children, ages 6 to 21 years old. He runs a clothing store in Krootown Center area in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
He's been in this business for 21 years and sells T-shirts, coat material and trousers. His business is the only source of income he has. He says that the main challenge for his business is insufficient capital to invest in his business.
Mohamed requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy more T-shirts, coat material and trousers. He says that the extra income from this loan will help him educate his children and improve his standard of living. In the future, he would like to import goods from London. He is grateful for your support.
