A loan of $1,500 helped to purchase raw materials for her sewing works.


Shano's story

Shano is 22 years young and lives in a typical Iraqi household setting, where 3 generations share the space and share the work, each contributing to making the house a home. In the guest living room, the family's possessions are neatly displayed and decorated to showcase a good status as the result of generations of work. As Shano was becoming an adult, it was time for her to also contribute to the family's living expenses. Educated to the primary level, she has been meeting this duty since 2008 by doing sewing work in her home. In the past, Shano applied for, received, and successfully repaid the first loan she took from Relief International-Iraq. She used this loan to improve her working area. Shano now took a loan of 1,500 USD from RI-Iraq to buy raw materials. Shano is under 30, qualifying for a youth loan.
