Mohamed's story

Meet Mohamed. He is 32 years old and from Aberdeen, western rural area in Sierra Leone. He is married with one child, age 4 years.

In 2002, Mohamed established his retail business. He began his business because he wanted to generate a permanent source of income to support the home. He works at the business ten hours per day, six days per week. He says that during the rainy season sales are slow.

Mohamed requires a loan in order to purchase more flasks, food containers, cups and knives for resale. He hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow him to take care of his family's welfare and increase his business. Seemingly distinct businesses are often mixed in Sierra Leone, the idea being that a customer will come to purchase one thing but will leave having purchased another.

In the future, Mohamed plans to expand his business more than ever. He thanks you for your support.
