Zahra's story

Zahra, 58, is a divorced Jordanian women with no children.

Because she is illiterate, it was nearly impossible to find a job that she can cover her expenses from. But that wasn’t a barrier in front of her. She kept looking for a way until she decided to use her sewing skills in business.

Zahra approached Microfund for Women and asked for a 700 JOD loan to buy a machine, fabrics, and other sewing tools to start working.

She dreams of improving her business and becoming financially independent.
