About The Project

$875 is needed for growing the business as the Corona virus lock down is eased.
$225 is what my family has to invest 


In March Tamba got a $100 investment from CII which he invested in materials and grew his revenues by 50% in less than a month.  The lockdown slowed business but he can now start to grow it again.  

The Cement Block Factory was created to provide cement blocks to local community members in Buchanan, Liberia. At the moment, the business is running on a few bags of cement and sand, and is delivered to only local neighborhoods to because it does not have a truck to do delivery.  The investment will expand the business and increase the production of cement brick and colomos. The project will use investments to purchase additional cement, sand, steel rods, shovels, and pay for rent space. The business works with other local suppliers like James David & Son Cements Dealer, and expanding this business will help expand the profits of these other local businesses as a chain effect. Before the lock down Tamba's Block Factory had five employees, and because there is demand for his blocks he knows he can rehire them and create more jobs.


Paying it Forward

Tamba helped Mr. Peter who was stranded during the Covid lockdown.  His business can grow significantly and he can create more jobs.  He shares what he earns with several other families in Grand Bassa and Lofa counties.

Backstory

LB0005:  In 2016, Factory Owner Tamba David started his former business by selling roasted meat and boil atayea tea through a machine called the "push-push" wheelbarrow. Through this wheelbarrow business, Tamba generated a daily income of around $12.50, of which he saved around $7.50 for future growth opportunities for his business. However, Tamba soon developed health problems as the fire fumes from the fire coal pot that is carried in the push-push wheelbarrow began affecting his breathing and overall health. After enduring worsening health outcomes during four months of work, Tamba decided to buy a new motorbike to replace the wheelbarrow.  A year later, Tamba decided to begin a new business, selling cement blocks to local customers. He started this block molding business with $200 USD, which was used to buy 20 bags of cement. Tamba is the primary supporter of his family, extended relatives and will help other community members with his business profits.

    Tamba has a history of entrepreneurship and sense of business. He is a good investment risk who can create badly needed jobs in the community.
