Shadan's Group's story

Shadan is a member of this group from Iraq. Shadan is 26 years old and single. Her mother left the family when she was a child, and her father married another woman and left Shadan and her sisters. Now Shadan lives with her married sister. She is one of the Iraqi women that have seen a difficult life. She grew up without mother or father.

She has good sewing skills, so she decided to start her own business in 2011. She uses her sewing skills to generate additional income and participate in meeting the financial needs of herself and her sisters. She has two years of experience with her home-based sewing business. In order to improve the quality of the services to her customers, as well as to improve her working conditions, Shadan would like to buy a new sewing machine, an air conditioner, and fabric.

Shadan has a very good reputation in her neighborhood, with her special talent and the customer service she provides. She is aiming to develop her business and increase her profits, so that she may be able to open a big place for her business and continue assisting her sisters with the additional income.

The story of Shadan and her sewing business is just one of the many examples of Izdiharona’s clients, who have been able to improve their businesses with a small business loan product.

The group preferred to have their faces altered, for cultural reasons.

In this group: Shadan, Kalthum , Kurdistan
