Hoodo Mohamed looks through a rack of clothing Friday while helping a customer at the Al Madina Variety Store at 266 Lisbon St. in Lewiston, owned by her mother. “She’s had the store as long as I can remember,” Mohamed says. “She is a businesswoman and an inspiration.” Mohamed says she returned home two weeks ago to be with her family for Ramadan fasting. “All my friends who moved out of Lewiston always come home to our hometown for the holidays,” Mohamed says.
