A loan of $1,125 helped to buy more malaria drugs and cold medicine.


Abdulai's story

Abdulai is 35 years old and married with one child, age two. He runs a pharmacy and drugstore in Aberdeen, Sierra Leone. He also supports three relatives.

Abdulai has owned this business for 11 years. He earns additional income from a commercial bike that he runs for public transportation. He says that the main challenge to his business is unstable electricity. Most of the drugs must be kept in a cool atmosphere, but electricity is not always available.

He requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more blood syrups, malaria drugs, and cold syrups. Abdulai says that the extra income from this loan will help him improve his standard of living. In the future, he would like to expand his business and open more branches.
