Musa's story

Musa is 36 years old and married with 2 children ages 12 years and 15 years. He runs a pharmacy and cosmetics store in Lumley in the western area of Freetown. Both children are currently attending school.

Musa has been in this business for 8 years and sells medicines and cosmetic like cream, Vaseline, pads, blood syrup (tonic), cola syrup and malaria drugs at his store. He also earns income from another business, a taxi transportation business. He says that the main challenges to his business are competition among sellers and price fluctuation.

He requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more medicines and cosmetic items. Musa says that the extra income from this loan will help him improve his standard of living for his family. In the future, he would like to be importing drugs and cosmetics from abroad.
