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

A loan helped to buy vegetables and cans and other material for her home-based pickles business.

Fatima's story

Fatima is a Jordanian married woman. She and her husband are helping each other in covering the living expenses, he is an employee and she works in a plant nursery.

After the continuous increase of life costs, Fatima thought of having some extra income even if she will have to work more and rest less.

Everyone who knows Fatima knows that she makes very delicious pickles with a huge experience in it. That encouraged Fatima toward borrowing 700 JD and buy vegetables, cans, and all the materials needed to start making pickles and sell in her area and through her wide relations.

She is hoping that she will open her own shop in the near future and maintain a good income from it.
