A loan of $575 helped to buy more vegetables for making pickles and to buy new containers.

Wafaa's story

Wafaa is a 42-year-old housewife and a mother to six children. Her husband Wajeeh works as a truck driver who collects scrap and junk.

To be able to support their big family Wafaa decided to help her husband by doing what she is good at, which is making different types of pickles such as olive pickles and eggplant pickles.

After making those pickles and packing them in special containers, she sells them to the nearby food markets, besides taking orders from her friends and neighbors.

Now Wafaa has applied for a loan to make more pickles so she can distribute them to more supermarkets and food shops.
