Samiya's story

Samiya, 26-year-old mother of five, lives in Israel's Negev region. She learned the art of sewing pillows and specialty Bedouin mattresses from her mother and grandmother. When young couples are married, it is tradition to help them furnish their homes with these pillows and mattresses. Samiya began her business of creating these pillows and mattresses from her home and has gained a reputation for creating beautiful products.

Samiya needed this loan to purchase raw materials such as wool, cloth, thread as well as additional gifts for customers to buy.

Through this loan Samiya has begun to branch out into additional gifts such as perfumes & cosmetics. She wants to continue to expand, add another sewing machine and in the next five years move to a central location outside of her home.
