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

A loan helped to buy raw materials and cosmetics for her home-based business.

Hayat's story

Hayat is a Syrian woman who is 46 years old and a mother of three children. She and her family left their hometown of Daraa in 2013. Since her husband is unemployed, Hayat is struggling to guarantee a good income for her family. For this reason, she started a home-based retail business.

She is requesting a loan of 500 JOD to buy raw materials and cosmetics for her business since she has experience in the field of natural beauty products. Hayat hopes to improve her business and expand her work so that she can reach more customers. Someday she hopes to have her own store.
