This loan will help Patience purchase the software and computer system she needs to keep her local pharmacy competitive.

Originally from Nigeria, Patience made a stable career for herself in New York City as a pharmacist. After years of working in large pharmacies, she decided to begin her own pharmacy to offer personalized and friendly care to her local community. In August 2012, Patience began PeeGee’s Pharmacy and Surgical Supplies, providing pharmaceutical needs as well as surgical supplies for local medical offices throughout Queens, NY.

Now looking to expand her business and offer more products to her customers, Patience needs to update her computer system to enhance productivity and improve her customer service capabilities. This loan will help Patience purchase the software system as well as to upgrade her storefront appearance with new signage to attract more customers.

Patience lives with her daughter and hopes to continue to grow her business in order to contribute to her community’s development.
