Meet 37-year-old Mohamed from Waterloo - the eastern area of Freetown, Sierra Leone. He is married with 1 child aged 2 years.

In 2005, Mohamed established his timber business and has 2 employees working for him. His other source of income comes from renting out a house.

Mohamed first gained experience with this business when he was living with his uncle. In 2005, he decided to start his own business because he saw that the business was profitable. He works at the business from 7 am until 8 pm, 7 days per week. He says that the main challenge is transportation cost.

Mohamed requires a loan in order to purchase more power-saw machines. He hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow him to educate his child. In the future, Mohamed plans to open timber industries. He thanks you for your support.
