A loan of $925 helped to pay for three bags of used sneakers.


Mohamed's story

This is 44-year-old Mohamed. He is married, and has six children, aged 3, 6, 7, 13, 16 and 19.

In 1998, Mohamed established his used shoes business. He began his business because he wanted to be self-reliant after coming from the village. His business is located in the city center, and his main customers are adults. Working seven days a week and 10 hours a day, he earns about 1,859,500 SLL (Sierra Leone leones) every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of 4,000,000 SLL.

Mohamed has already received and successfully repaid three loans, and now requires a new loan in order to buy an additional three bags of used sneakers. He hopes that this loan can increase the stock and raise the profit. In the future, Mohamed plans to expand the business to a bigger shop and plans to open another outlet for his wife. He thanks you for your support.
