A loan of $1,175 helped to buy pharmaceuticals.

Jestina's story

This is 43-year-old Jestina. She is married and has five children, aged 20, 17, 14, 11 and 8 years.

In 1997, Jestina established her patient medicine business to assist her husband in the running of the home. She went through training at the Nixiou Hospital in Segbwema. Working seven days a week and 12 hours a day, she earns about 2,240,000 SLL (Sierra Leone leones) every month.

Jestina would like a loan in the amount of 5,000,000 SLL. She has already received and successfully repaid loans, and now requires a new loan in order to buy more pharmaceuticals. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately 350,000 SLL.

In the future, Jestina plans to own a modern pharmacy and to establish a branch in Pujehun, her hometown. She also hopes that the loan will increase her stock and capital. One challenge she faces is the proliferation of fake drugs. She thanks you for your support.
