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

A loan helped to support her clothes trading business with new items.

Walaa's story

Walaa is 31 years old. She is a Jordanian lady and a mother of three kids. Her husband works in the military and his income is barely enough to cover the family's needs.

To help her husband and increase the family income, Walaa decided to start a home-based clothes trading business, but starting such a business was not easy because of marketing and competitors. But Walaa is a hardworking woman and she's determined to success. She started the business and overcame the challenges and now her business is growing.

She needs to supply it with more clothing items but she lacks the finances needed so she decided to ask for a 1,100 JOD loan. She hopes for success for the business to keep supporting the family.
