Nuha, from Madaba Jordan, is a 48-year-old married mother of four children. Nuha started her enterprise years ago from her home, selling a limited range of products from a small table; she later dedicated a corner in her home for the business and added shelves to hold more products. Now requesting a loan of 600 JD to purchase more products for her store, Nuha aspires to license it and move it from her home.
