Hanan's story

Hanan is a 39 year old married woman who has 7 children. Her husband is a driver and she is an employee at one of the factories in Jordan.
To be able to help in supporting the family income, Hanan also started making decorative pieces 3 years ago. These items look like plants and flowers. Hanan makes the pieces using plastic and other materials, while still keeping her original job at the factory.

Now Hanan has applied for a loan in order to help her proceed with her business and open a specialty store for selling what she makes.
