Mayson is a 39-year-old married woman from Baqa'a, Jordan and has two children.
Mayson started her business with only one sewing machine with sales limited to friends and neighbors. But with her exceptional talent and her hard work, Mayson could expand her business into a small workshop where she has more than one sewing machine and sell her items to shops not only to individuals.
Now, Mayson is requesting a loan of 1,000 JD to purchase fabrics for designing and sewing clothes with the aspiration of purchasing her own house and financing her children's education.
