Saffinatu is 32 years old and married with four children, between the ages of 1 and 16 years old. She runs a medical drug business in Tombo in western rural Sierra Leone. She started this business to meet her daily needs.

She's been in this business since 2010, and sells blood syrup, pain tablets, malaria drugs and oral rehydration salts within her community. She says that the main challenge to her business is that sometimes the drugs expire and cool.
