Fatima's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy a folding table and a dryer to make the work better to keep her customers' business.

Fatima's story

Fatima has a family business. She learned the art of laundry from her husband. He ran a small business that had little return. She put his hand on hers, and together they embarked on a larger business. The orders started flowing, and the workload increased. She had to divide the work on the both of them. He attended the sewing machine and fixing clothes, while she did the laundry and folded clothes. A loan will help her get a folding table and a dryer. She is happy to be making a good income. She lives and works in a conflict zone.
