A loan of $925 helped to purchase more blood syrup, cold syrup, malaria drugs and baby food.

Fatmata's story

Fatmata runs a pharmacy store in Calabatown, a neighborhood in Freetown. She has been in this business for three years and sells blood syrup, cold syrup, malaria drugs and baby food at her drugstore. She also earns income from renting out a house. She says that the main challenge in her business is price inflation.

Fatmata is 35 years old and married with two children, ages 3 and 11. She also takes care of six relatives as well as her immediate family.

Fatmata requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more medicine and baby food. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her improve her standard of living and educate her children. In the future, she would like to expand her business and open a clinic.
