A loan of $1,275 helped to buy raw materials to increase her productivity.


Mariam's story

Mariam is a 44-year-old widow; she has 3 children to raise. Since she can’t read or write, she took a few courses to learn how to make baskets from straw and how to sew the Jordanian traditionA. head covering for men “Shmagh”, so she would be able to support her family financially.

Mariam started a small business 7 years ago; she makes beautifully hand-woven baskets and handmade head covers and from selling them she has managed to support her family.

Now Mariam has applied for a loan to increase her productivity so she can increase her income each year, until she is able to open a small shop to display her work for sale.
