Shawnm's story

Shawnm is a 32-year-old married Iraqi woman. When Shawnm was a child, her mother taught her how to knit and sew. Shawnm mastered this skill and in 2010, she bought an old machine to assist her husband in providing their family's income. She gained an excellent reputation in the neighborhood—thanks to the quality of her work and affordable prices.
Shawnm is requesting a loan of 1,800 USD in order to buy a new sewing machine and fabric to increase her production. She is aiming to grow her business and increase her profits so that she may continue assisting her husband with providing the family income.
The story of Shawnm and her business is just one of the many examples of Izdiharona for Economic Development's clients who have been able to improve their business with a small business loan product, specifically designed to meet the needs of small businesses where a relatively small amount of capital can provide significant business improvement.

She asked to blur her face because she is from a rural area and preferred to have her face altered for cultural reasons.
