Sozan's story

Sozan is a 31-year-old Iraqi woman. She is married and the mother of one child. With limited career options, due to cultural restrictions and domestic constraints, Sozan is one of the many Iraqi woman who is working from home, using her sewing skills to generate some income and participate in meeting the financial needs of her family. Sozan has a year of experience with her small home-based sewing and tailoring activity, which she hopes to grow because of her creativity and attract more clients with special orders for dresses and household items made with fabrics. She is currently using an old sewing machine and would like to buy an embroidery machine and some nice good quality fabrics and raw materials to work with. She hopes that, with these purchases, she will be able to attract more customers and provide them with quality creative products. To be able to pay for these items, she took out a loan from Relief International Microfinance Iraq in the amount of $2,000.
