Balia
Meet 37-year-old Balia from Waterloo eastern area in Freetown. She is married and has three children between 7 and 19 years.

In 2003, Balia established her medical drugs business. She began her business because she wanted to create her own source of income to contribute in taking care of the children. She works at the business from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m., seven days per week. She says that the main challenges to her business are price inflation and the high cost of transportation.

Balia requires a loan in order to purchase a variety of medical drugs to expand her business. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to change her status of living and increase her business. In the future, Balia plans to expand her business more. She thanks you for your support.
