Meet 28-year-old Mohamed from Waterloo, an eastern area in Freetown. He is a father of one child, age 3 years. In 2008, Mohamed established his general merchandise business. He began his business because he wants to create income to support his family. He works at the business every day, from morning to night. He says that the main challenge to his business is the high cost of renting the shop.
Mohamed requires a loan in order to buy general stock, like a television, some malt, a generator, and packet hair. He hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow him to increase his business and improve his status. In the future, Mohamed plans to expand his business at a higher level. He thanks you for your support.
