In the past, Heshw successfully applied, received, and repaid a loan to Relief International - Microfinance Iraq, which she used to buy a sewing machine, iron, and iron stand.

Focusing on improving her working conditions, Heshw is reqeusting a loan from Relief International - Microfinance Iraq, which she will use to renovate her work area and purchase more quality fabrics and raw materials to further improve her business and offer more to her customers.

Relief International - Microfinance Iraq offers group loans for clients unable to provide a guarantor, thereby unable to apply for a loan as an individual. As a group, the members collectively guarantee the loan. Groups consist of three to five clients and each client is evaluated on his or her repayment capacity. All group members receive the same loan amount as the individual with the lowest repayment capacity in the group.
