Komba is 40 years old and married with four children between the ages of 2 and 12 years old. He runs a pharmacy at Waterloo in the eastern area of Freetown, Sierra Leone. Three of his children are currently attending school.
He's been in this business for 18 years and sells oral hydration salt (ORS) injections, malarial drugs and blood syrup at his store. His business is the only income he has. He says that his business has improved but he has insufficient capital to invest in his business.
He requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy more drugs like oral hydration salt (ORS) injections, malarial drugs and blood syrup. He says that the extra income from this loan will help him educate his children and increase his business. In the future, he would like to open a clinic and build a big house. He is grateful for your support.
