This is 35 year old Mohamed who lives in Waterloo, Sierra Leone with his wife and two children, ages 1 and 5.
Mohamed owns a spare parts business he started six years ago. He dropped out of school when his father had health problems and started his own business. He works at his business 20 hours per day, six days per week for the entire month. He will use the loan proceeds to buy more inventory such as engine oil, tires and brake fluid. He hopes to expand his business and become an importer of spare parts from Holland and become the wholesaler/distributor for all types of motor vehicle parts. He says that transporting stock from the purchasing site to the store is difficult. He thanks you in advance for your support.
