A loan helped a member to purchase biosafety products.


Arcoiris Group's story

Rutid is an enterprising 40 year old woman. She is a single mother to 3 small children. She has an 8 month old baby, another daughter who is 5 and the oldest is 11. She can be seen in the center of the photograph, wearing a white t-shirt.

For the past 12 years, she has made a living selling all types of products in a shop in her neighborhood. Her store and home are located in the same place, so her costs are low, she does not pay rent.

She is requesting a loan from Sembrar Sartawi IDF to purchase different biosafety products, such as gel alcohol, face masks and disinfectant. Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, these items have been requested a lot.

She wants the best for her daughters, she wants to provide them with the best education.
