Mohamed is 60 years old and married with 3 children, aged 26 years and 32 years. He runs a used clothing store in Tengbeh Town, western area in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
He's been in this business for 20 years and sells carpet and different types of used clothes. He also earns income from renting out a house. He says that the main challenge to his business is low capital to invest in his business.
He requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy more bed room carpets, bed sheets, pillow cases and window cotton. He says that the extra income from this loan will help him to raise enough money to maintain his home. In the future, he would like to have a permanent shop structure. He is grateful for your support.
