Wafa'a's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy more second-hand clothes for her trading business.

Wafa'a's story

Wafa'a is a 52-year-old Jordanian woman and mother of four children. She has been through a lot of hardships in her life since she lost her husband. Wafa'a now carries the responsibilities of supporting the family.

She started a home-based used-clothes trading business to help her to get additional income and enhance her family's living situation. She faces many challenges in her endeavor, like not having the necessary money to buy clothes in order to support her business and keep it running. So, she decided to ask for a 700 JOD loan to get the necessary goods for the business. She hopes for success in the business.
