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

A loan helped to support her mini-market with goods and refrigerator.

Ibtisam's story

Ibtisam is an ambitious 53 years old Jordanian married woman and a mother of four. She opened her minimarket with the help of her son Ahmad. Her husband, on the other hand, is a day labourer who works with her. Because of the previous loan, she was able to pay for her daughter’s tuition fees as well as expanding her project.

She asks for another loan, which is 1100 JDs, to buy quantities of goods as well as a refrigerator for her minimarket. She hopes she can expand her business to be able to afford the tuition fees for her other daughter. Her hardships that she usually faces are the existence of some competitors in the area. Ibtisam hopes for the best.

She is seen with her son in the picture.
