Huwaida has a handcrafts talent and has had this hobby for 30 years. This hobby turned into a passion and she created a business out of it . She faced many hardships, including lack of marketing and lack of local support. Huwaida decided to expand the business and has asked for a 1,000 JOD loan to buy more goods for her business.

Huwaida is looking forward to a prosperous future.
