Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 32-year-old Kadiatu from the Waterloo eastern area in Freetown. She is married with five children between the ages of 2 and 15 years. Three of her children attend school. She began this business to generate income to support the home.
Kadiatu runs a pharmacy business; she sells different kinds of medical drugs. She has been running this business since 2000. She operates a vendor business, moving around the area to establish her goods. Kadiatu says that the main challenge to her business is the problem of price control in the market.
Kadiatu has requested a loan in order to purchase more medical drugs for resale. The extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children. In the future, she plans to have a permanent business residence. She thanks you for your support!
