Established in 1997, Tabaarak Company (“Tabaarak”) is the leading manufacturer of pillows, mattresses, and seat cushions in Puntland. The company produces ten mattress sizes, three types of seat cushions, and pillows based on feedback from customers. Tabaarak’s expanding customer base required the construction of a second factory 700 kilometers from their first. However, the newer factory lacks the machinery needed to produce the demanded volume.
To furnish the newer factory, Tabaarak requested and was approved for a loan from the Nordic Horn of Africa Opportunities Fund. The loan will be used to procure equipment and raw materials so the factory can begin producing the volume needed to satisfy their customers’ needs.
