Asmaa's story

Asmaa is a 29-year-old Syrian woman. She is married, and a mother of six children, one of them is showing in the picture. Her husband is the only breadwinner in the house.

After the Syrian War and her immigration, Asmaa has been facing many financial and social hardships, especially with the rising prices in Jordan. Asmaa decided to help her family and start her own business in clothes selling but Asmaa needs financial help. She decided to ask for a 400 JOD loan to buy clothes in order to sell them in her home-based business.

Asmaa hopes to help her husband financially and mentally. She is looking forward to a basic monthly income, to educate her kids and secure their future.
