Mohamed G
This is 29 year-old Mohamed. He is married and has 2 children who are 10 and 4 years old.

In 2013, Mohamed established his mobile phone accessories, touch light, belt, and sun glasses business. He began his business because he used to assist his elder brother while in school. After completing senior secondary school, he learned photography.

He accumulated some money and bought a commercial motorbike. He rode for some years and opened a shop. He works 7 days a week and 12 hours a day to earn 1,590,000 SLL every month. He would like a loan in the amount of 4,000,000 SLL to purchase different types of mobile phone accessories (batteries chargers, memory cards and touch lights).

In the future, Mohamed plans to buy a piece of land, provide a quality education for his children, and expand the business. This loan will help him to improve the business and generate more income. He has inadequate capital to meet customer's needs.

He thanks you for supporting his business.
