Miriam's story

Miriam is a divorced mother of six. She is one of the first Bedouin woman to succeed in ‎attaining a divorce through the courts and maintain her home as her property against the ‎choice of her former husband. This is a precedent among her community and she is a ‎symbol for many.

Miriam opened a bridal salon in her home together with her daughter ‎and one of her daughter-in-law’s. Her daughter provides makeovers for brides and bridal ‎parties. While there are many bridal salons in ‎their city, hers is the only one to offer services specifically for darker skinned women. They ‎have specialty makeup colors and creams.‎

Miriam needed this loan to purchase bridal dresses for rentals, creams and makeup and a ‎professional iron.‎

Miriam continues to be an example for many women from her community. She wants to ‎continue her business and have her daughter ad daughter in-law see it expand long into ‎the future.‎
