Madaba, Jordan / Furniture Making

A loan of $2,400 helped to buy new tools that will help them make new shapes on wood.


Safaa's story

Safaa, 38 years old, is the mother of six. She is a hardworking mother who is helping the family by working as a teacher while her husband is a restaurant manager. After that, she started working with her husband at home, recycling wooden scraps to make beautiful furniture and decoration pieces. They collect the scraps from everywhere and sometimes buy them if that isn’t enough. Their house is their catalog: people come over and chose what they want them to make.

Sometimes they get some help from carpenters for shaping difficult pieces because they lack the machines. Safaa has applied for this loan in order to buy new tools that will help them make new shapes and add more artistic drawings to what they do, so they can in the future have their own carpentry shop.
