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

A loan helped to buy clothes and sell through her home-based clothing sales business.

Ayat's story

Ayat, a 26-year-old Syrian woman, is married and has two children. Her husband is a construction worker. Ayat left Syria in 2004 because of the war and has lived with very many financial and living difficulties. Having only her husband working wasn't enough to cover the family expenses, so she decided to start a small home-based clothing sales business to gain extra income that may help her and her family.

To be able to start buying clothes to sell, she asked for a loan of 400 JD from Microfund for Women.

Ayat aims for more stability for her family and a steady job.
