A loan helped to buy a stock of hats and supplies for her hat store.

Gali Miriam's story

Gali and her husband moved to Israel five years ago. They managed a tourism ‎business overseas and have opened their business in northern Israel. Their ‎business sells hats including the specialty black hats for ultra-orthodox men. They also provide hat cleaning ‎services. They manage the northern branch of a successful Jerusalem chain.

‎Before the store opened, there was nowhere in the area to buy such hats and ‎men would travel to central Israel, so her clientele is growing. Her customers ‎include locals and tourists. The business has proved worth her investment in ‎setting it up and initial stock and has strong potential.‎

Gali needs this loan for a stock of hats and supplies and to upgrade the store.‎

As the business grows, Gali wants to branch out and include boutique wine ‎and craft beers which are not available in the area. ‎
