So, in 2009 she started her own food production and sales from home. Layla prepares a lot of frozen food in addition to cleaning and freezing vegetables.
To improve her business and respond faster to the increased number of customers' requests, she is applying for a loan to buy a special meat mincing machine. That will make her work faster and more professionally and she will also decrease her costs (instead of paying for a butcher for meat mincing) and improve the quality of food produced.
She will also buy another electrical machine specialized for food preparations to expand the range of food prepared.
She hopes that one day she might open a catering company that will serve a lot of weddings and funerals.
