A loan helped To add more seasonal winter clothes to what they sell.

Rabeea's story

Rabeea, 49 years old and widowed, was left with three sons and one daughter. She is a hardworking mother and a fighter who started a small home-based business 20 years ago on a small scale, selling clothes. Four years ago, Rabeea was able to open her own store in the market and fill it with different types of clothes. Her son Firas now helps her in the store. Now, Rabeea has applied for a loan to add more winter clothes to what they sell as we have entered the season. Because Rabeea is a conservative person, she has requested that her son Firas appear in the photo instead.
