A loan of $2,850 helped to buy a new sewing machine.


Basma's story

Basma is a 47-year-old housewife with a big family of nine sons and daughters. However, Basma is not a traditional housewife, but a practical and ambitious business woman. She owns a small business making dresses and doing traditional dress embroidery. She has started to teach her daughters the business so they may help her and follow in her footsteps.

Basma's success in her small business is reflected by how much her products have spread throughout the market and in how many exhibitions she participates. She has done quite well so far.

Now she has applied for a loan to buy a new sewing machine for her daughter in order to increase her productivity. And she hopes in the future to rent a small place next to her house and turn it into a sewing and embroidery workshop where she can employ more of the neighborhood’s housewives.
