Liberia

After years of brutal civil war, Liberia was hit by the worst Ebola epidemic in history, which shut down the country and economy. However, five years on, young people are reclaiming their futures. With 60% of the country’s population under the age of 35 and a huge lack of employment opportunities, SPARK is focused on creating jobs. We support talented entrepreneurs to make sustainable businesses to boost the local economy, provide youth with relevant skills for the business market to increase employability and improve the capabilities of smallholder farmers.

“We are the ones creating the fundamentals for stability and growth”

Mahmud won a SPARK business plan competition with his business, J-Palm, and received access to finance. His company uses a no-waste manufacturing process to create a range of affordable, organic palm oil-based skin and hair care products. The palm kernels are then utilised to make a wood charcoal alternative.
