A loan of $1,500 helped to buy new tailoring and sewing machines.


Nowwara's story

Nowwara is 30 years old and comes from Gaza. She is married and lives with her eight family members at her father-in-law's house.

She owns a small shop for tailoring clothes for kids and selling them. She asked Ryada for this youth loan in order to buy new tailoring and sewing machines.

She hopes that this loan will help her start with a display space and increase her income through selling more clothes in order to provide her children with a better education.
