Azhar's story

Azhar is a 29-year-old Palestinian married woman from Gaza and a mother of three kids. Her husband is a farmer. Azhar and her family face many daily hardships due to the financial situation so she started a home-based food production business but one of the challenges she faces in the business is how to get the needed goods due to the difficult conditions of the area.

Azhar never gives up and she wants to keep supporting her business and buy more goods but she lacks the financial ability so she decided to ask for a 600 JOD loan to buy more goods such as beans and chickpeas to store them and sell them. She is looking forward to expanding her business into a bigger one. She hopes she would be able to support her family and have a stable monthly income.
