A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase raw materials for carpet weaving.

Fatima's story

Fatima is 60 years old and married with five children. She lives in the Lebanese Beqaa region where she weaves carpets for a living. She has been doing this for 15 years. She loves her works and loves to teach her children the skill, saying that the art is in danger of becoming extinct in the new generation. With this loan she wants to purchase primary raw materials to support her work and develop it. She is part of a heritage that is facing financial difficulties thereby hindering the development of her business. She is energetic and is always seeking to develop her work so that she may secure a good standard of living for herself and her family.
