A loan of $1,150 helped to buy more material and tools for her sewing business.


Ruqaya's story

Ruqaya is a 49-year-old widowed woman who has three sons and two daughters.
When she was young, Ruqaya used to embroider pillows and table covers as a hobby. Later, she worked on improving her skills by challenging herself to do other types of embroidery such as wall hangings and traditional dresses. When people who visited her home saw the embroidery she did for her house they started to make special orders. As a result, Ruqaya turned her hobby into her own small business, which she can depend on for an income to support her and her family, especially after her husband passed away.
Now Ruqaya has applied for a loan to buy more material and tools that will help speed up her production so that she can serve her customers on time.
Because Ruqaya is a conservative person, her daughter Sabha is photographed instead of her.
