A loan of $1,700 helped to purchase new fabric and other materials for her sewing and tailoring work.

Ajhan's story

Ajhan is a vibrant 41-year-old woman who has a big proud smile on her face as she shows her home in Iraq. She created and maintains a beautiful living space for her and her two children whom she is raising alone since her husband died. Since then she had to work twice as hard to create a respected social status.

At the end of the hallway is a separate room for her sewing, tailoring work. She developed her small business slowly, but the 20 years of experience shows in her work and in her positive attitude.

She has and she will continue to work hard to make sure she can secure a great future for her children, and provide them the necessary means for a good education.

Ajhan has successfully applied, received and repaid three consecutive loans in the past from Relief International-Iraq - each she used to step-by-step build up her equipment and workspace. She now took a loan of 1700 USD from RI-Iraq in order to purchase more fabric and raw materials and other small items to advance her workspace and advance her business.
