Grace    Mary
Greetings from Sierra Leone! From Tengbehtown, this is 45-year-old Grace, a resident of the western area in Freetown and married mother of three children between the ages of 18 and 25 years. Two of her children attend school.

For 10 years, Grace has operated a pharmacy in Congo town, selling baby cream, multivites syrup, aspirin, choroqiune, injections, and anti-malarial drugs. Working at the business seven days per week, and with one employee, she also works as a private nurse to earn additional income. Grace says that the main challenge to her business is low capital for investment.

Grace has requested a loan to buy more cosmetic and medical drugs. The extra income from this loan will allow her to improve the welfare of her children. In the future, she plans to open a bigger medical store. She thanks you for your support!
