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

A loan helped to buy wool to make Arab dresses like the one she is wearing to reach young women with the rich Arab culture around them.

Hanan's story

Hanan took upon herself the responsibility of promoting Arab culture and customs. She does so by recreating Arab crafts. The culture she is promoting is far richer than what the customers expect. There are songs, dress and dances related to it. She is reaching to a public that is becoming modernized and forgetting the ways of the past.

She wants to keep history alive. A loan will help her buy wool to make Arab dresses for women like the one she is wearing. These sell well and from them she will make an income to keep her project alive. She participates in local bazaars and is part of a strong community.
