Mohamed's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy machinery and wood for his carpentry to produce at a higher pace to improve his work environment.

Mohamed's story

Mohamed is a carpenter. He began a decade ago making whatever he could from wood. His practice turned perfect and he was able to open his carpentry five years ago. Most of his work is handmade because his carpentry doesn't have all the needed machinery. His dream is to have a fully functional carpentry. A loan will help him realize a portion of his dream and get the machinery and wood he needs. He is from a conflict zone and there is little to no possibility for funding other than this opportunity.
