Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 49-year-old Catherine from Torkpoi town Bo, a married mother of six children between the ages of 13 and 29. She has two additional dependents living with her.

Catherine runs a drug store selling blood syrup, malarial drugs and pain medication. She has been operating this business for the past five years, working eight hours per day, seven days per week. Catherine says that transportation costs are the main challenge to her business.

Catherine has requested a loan in order to buy more medical drugs for resale. The extra resulting income will allow her to improve her business. In the future, she plans to open a clinic. She thanks you for your support!
