Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is designed for home-based businesses and income generation projects run by women in Iraq. Following years of conflict in the country, female-headed households constitute a highly vulnerable segment of the Iraqi population. Iraqi women continue to face widespread instances of gender based violence, including domestic violence, honor killings, and trafficking. Government programs intended to support women often suffer from corruption, outdated systems, and administrative obstacles. By supporting this loan, you are enabling a woman in Iraq to establish or grow her business.
