Hiam's story

Hiam is a 50-year-old Jordanian widow who is struggling to provide for her family. Due to her low-income situation, she started a business to help improve her living conditions. After the passing of her husband, Hiam faced multiple challenges. One of those challenges was her family’s disapproval of her business due to cultural conflict that woman are incapable to work.

Also, she is the main provider for her household since her sons are struggling to find a job since they are non- Jordanian.

Despite it all, Hiam started trading and selling winter clothes and blankets. Her ultimate goal is to open up her own store to display and sell goods. She is seeking a fund of 600 JOD to expand her business and accomplish her goals.
