Mohamed's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy local foodstuff for resale.

Mohamed's story

This is 37-year-old Mohamed. He is married and has two children ages 14 and 11 years old. In 1993, Mohamed established his local foodstuff (gari and palm oil) business. He began his business because he wanted to help develop himself and his family. His business is located in the outskirts of town and his main customers are young men and women. Working 7 days a week and 11 hours hours a day, he earns about Le 600,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan of Le 3,000,000. Mohamed now requires a new loan to buy local foodstuff for resale. In the future, Mohamed plans to build houses and stores and educate his children to the university level. He thanks you for your support.
