A loan of $275 helped to purchase malarial drugs, cholera drugs, and blood syrup.


Ishatu's story

Ishatu is 28 years old, married, and has three children, one of whom attends school. She operates a pharmacy in Waterloo in the western rural area in Sierra Leone, which she has been doing for 13 years. She sells malarial drugs, cholera drugs, and blood syrup within her community. Her main challenge is the lack of capital to expand her business.

Ishatu is requesting a loan from BRAC Sierra Leone, which she will use to buy more malarial drugs, cholera drugs, and blood syrup to sell. The extra income from this loan will help her increase her business and pay her children's school fees. In the future, she would like to open a big clinic in her community.
