Learn Book Group's story

Mohamed is the leader of the Learn Book Solidarity Group which is made up of five members. All five members including Mohamed are engaged in petty trading but selling different products.

Mohamed, who is 43 years old, was appointed by members of the group as their leader because of his wealth of experience in managing people. He sells building materials. Mohamed has been selling building materials for the past 10 years. He uses the proceeds from his business to pay fees for his children’s education and to provide a livelihood for his family.

Mohamed and the other group members of Learn Book Solidarity are requesting a loan, a total of 5,000,000 SLL. Of this amount, he will personally receive 1,500,000 SLL, which he will use to purchase additional building materials for his business.

He is standing in the middle of the picture with the blue African costume. He is married and has five children with the ages of 13, 9, 6, 3 and 1. Mohamed hopes that his business will continue to exist so that he can save enough money to help with the house expenses and also prepare for his old age.

He hopes that in the future with the proceed of his business, he will be able to build a three bed room dwelling house, help family members, and educate his children to university level. Mohamed and his group members thank you for financing their businesses.
