A loan helped to expand her livestock farm.

Hana'a's story

Hana'a is a 41-year-old Jordanian woman who helps her husband with expenses; he works in security for a low income.

She retired from the Army in 2014 and decided to start her own business in livestock trading. She took a loan from Microfund for Women to buy sheep and establish her business.

Hana ’a faced several problems when she started. These problems included high prices and society’s view of women in this profession. She managed to overcome these issues and set an example for women in her area.

Hana ‘a’s business gradually improved, which helped to improve her living conditions.

She asked for a 1,500 JOD loan from Kiva's field partner Microfund for Women, which supports women business owners, to buy more equipment and sheep.

She dreams of expanding her own business to open a shop in the local market and enhance her living situation.
