Zakia's Group's story
Zakia is a member of this group from Iraq. Zakia is 47 years old. She is a widow and has one child. She is one of the many Iraqi women who are working from home, using her sewing skills to generate additional income and participate in meeting the financial needs of her family. She has ten years of experience with her home-based sewing business activity and to improve the quality of the services to her customers as well as improve her work conditions, she would like to buy a new sewing machine, an iron and fabric. Zakia has a very good reputation in her neighborhood, with her special talent and the customer service she provides. She is aiming to develop her business and increase her profits by selling to wholesalers in addition to customers in her neighbourhood. She also wants to continue providing a good life for her child with the additional income . The story of Zakia and her sewing business is just one of the many examples from Izdiharona for Economic Development where clients have been able to improve their businesses with a small business loan product specifically designed to meet the needs of a small business where a relatively small amount of capital can provide significant business improvement.
