This is 33-year-old Comfort, from Moriba town Bo, a southern area in Sierra Leone. She is married, with three children between the ages of 2 years and 14 years. Her children are going to school. She started business because she wants to stop depending on her husband alone, instead, creating her own income.
Comfort runs a pharmacy business. She sells pads, malarial drugs, and tabs and injections. She has been running this business for five years. She works at the business, six days per week and twelve hours per day. She says, at present, her business is doing well. Out of the profit, she is able to have her source of living.
Comfort has requested a loan in order to purchase more medical drugs, including pads, malarial drugs, and tabs and injections, to expand her enterprise. The extra income from this loan will allow her to pay her children's school fees and change her status of living.
In the future, she plans to open a big clinic, so that she can help her community from illness. She appreciates your support.
