Mariama's story

This is 30-year-old Mariama from Waterloo eastern area in Freetown, Sierra Leone. She is married with three children between the ages of 2 and 22 years old.

Mariama established her business because she wants to improve the community health centre. Mariama runs a pharmacy at her store. She sells oral rehydration salt (ORS), glucose, blood syrup, cool syrup, and malaria drugs. She has been running this business for 10 years. She works at the business from 7 am until 9 pm, 7 days per week. Her business is the main source of income she has. She says that the main challenge to her business is drugs that expire before they are sold.

Mariama has requested a loan in order to buy more medicines such as oral rehydration salt (ORS), glucose, malarial drugs, blood syrup and cool syrup. The extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children. In the future, she plans to build a medical store and train people within the same community. She appreciates your support.
