About The Project

$2500 needed to help toward purchasing of power saws and a pick up truck
$225 invested by himself/family toward business

Andrew has a successful wood business, strategizing expansion. With your investment he would like to purchase power saws to help his employees saw timber in the bush. He also processes the lumber, cutting them to dimensions usable for building/house construction. He noticed many Liberians do not use very good materials when building their homes. He would like to buy plenty of wood and process it so that he will be able to provide better materials for them. He's hoping to partner with others to export wood.  Part of your investment will go towards a pick up truck to transport the timber from the forest to the lumbar yard. His efforts have created jobs for his community members. During covid-19 he had to lay off 2 of his employees because of decreased income. With the loosening of the curfew, he was able to hire the 2 other employees back. 

..." I will like to buy a truck to transport the goods" says Andrew


Paying it Forward

Andrew helps at least four other relatives that live in poorer parts of Liberia, sending money when he can.  During the Covid crisis he helped a neighbor, Emmanuel, to purchase cold water to sell. Emmanuel used the profit from selling the water for food during the lock down.
