A loan of $1,500 helped to improve her bakery workspace.

Taliea's story

Taliea is a 32-year-old married Iraqi woman who is the mother of two children. She is a proud working woman who helps support her family with contributions from the income she generates from her bakery. In the past, Taliea had worked from home doing minor sewing and tailoring jobs. She applied for and received a previous loan from Relief International - Iraq that she used to purchase a new sewing machine and materials. She successfully repaid her first loan, and then decided to spread her wings a little more and start a bakery.

For the past two years, Taliea has been successful with her new business, making popular baked good the locals call "tiri," a large bread made of flour and water only (sometimes with a little salt), baked on a surface much like an upside-down wok. The end product is a hard, dry bread which can be kept for months. Before it's eaten it is broken into smaller pieces, moistened, and kept wrapped in a cloth to make sure it doesn't dry out.

Taliea is requesting a 1500 USD loan from RI-Iraq to improve the working space in her bakery.
