Afyaa's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy an embroidery machine, a sewing machine, and an iron.
Afyaa is a 20-year-old, married Iraqi woman. She has one child. Seven years ago, Afyaa started sewing to assist her husband in their family's income. She decided to take a loan in order to improve the workplace conditions and to be able to increase her production and generate additional income. She gained an excellent reputation in the neighborhood, thanks to the quality of her work and affordable prices. Afyaa is requesting a loan from Izdiharona for Economic Development to buy an embroidery machine, a sewing machine, and an iron that will help her increase her production. She is aiming to grow her business and to open a small sewing factory, to increase the number of jobs and help more jobless women. The story of Afyaa and her sewing business is just one of the many examples of Izdiharona for Economic Development clients.
