Please meet 35-year-old Mohamed from Sierra Leone. He is married with five children between the ages of 4 and 18. All five of the children are attending school.
Mohamed owns an electrical appliance business in Waterloo, just outside of the capital, Freetown. He works 10 hours per day, 7 days per week at his business. He decided to go into business because he stopped going to school.
Mohamed will use the loan proceeds to buy electronic appliances such as lights and plugs. He says transportation from the city to the warehouse is a major challenge for his business.
He dreams that his business will get big and employ other people. He wants to use the extra income to help his wife and his family. Mohamed greatly appreciates your support!
