Taqwa's story

Taqwa is a 23-year- old Jordanian woman and mother of one child. She has been through a lot of hardships in her life since she lost her husband and became the only one responsible for her family. Because of that, she started a home-based clothes trading business to help her to get additional income and enhance her family living situation; however, she faces many obstacles in her business, like marketing and not having the adequate financial support to buy new items and keep supporting her business. Therefore, she decided to ask for a 600 JOD loan to get the needed products for the business. She hopes for success in the business and to have her own house in the future.
