This is 36-year-old Mohamed. He is married, and has 3 children aged 1, 4 and 9 years. In 2008, Mohamed established his used bicycle business. He began his business after dropping out of school for lack of fees and to be self reliant. Working 7 days a week and 11 hours a day, he earns about 1,982,000 SLL every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of 3,000,000 SLL. Mohamed requires a loan in order to develop the business. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately 250,000 SLL. In the future, Mohamed plans to be able to expand to a permanent store. He thanks you for your support.
