Amina's story

Amina Ali is a 43-year-old, married Iraqi woman. She is the mother of five children. She is a tailor and works from home. Amina started her business in 2003 to help her husband support the family. Amina has a very good reputation in her neighborhood. She decided to take out a loan to develop her business and increase her profits so that she may continue assisting her husband with providing additional income to improve the living conditions of her children.

The story of Amina 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.
