Mohamed operates a grocery business to earn an income. In his late thirties, Mohamed is married and has two children, ages two and seven, both of whom are enrolled in school. The family lives in Tombo.
Mohamed established his grocery store in 2005 within the Tombo community. He wanted to create a permanent source of income to support his family. He works at the business seven days per week from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and says that the main challenge to his business is the price inflation of his goods.
Mohamed is requesting a loan in order to purchase such items as milk, pure water, cigarettes, and soft drinks to offer for sale. He hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow him to become more successful and continue to pay his children's school fees.
In the future, Mohamed plans to expand his enterprise to wholesale.
He thanks you for your support.
