“Our main area of investment is to create employment for youth and to eradicate unemployment in the country,” he stated.

Kaddijatou Bah, senior marketing manager of Leigh Properties said investing in businesses has been their long-term plan and that their coming into the scene is to satisfy customers in all areas.

“We sold two estates in less than one year because of the trust and confidence people have in us,” she said.
