Wafa's story

Wafa is a 28-year-old, divorced Iraqi woman and she has two children. When Wafa was divorced in 2008, she had no means to support herself and her children, so she decided to buy an old sewing machine and start her own business to feed her children. She gained an excellent reputation in the neighborhood, thanks to the quality of her work.

Wafa is requesting a loan from Izdiharona for Economic Development to buy an air conditioner, an iron, a generator, and a sewing machine to increase her production. She is aiming to increase her profits by having a better machine, longer hours of electricity supply, and more comfortable working conditions, so that she may continue providing the best life to her children.

The story of Wafa and her sewing business is just one of the many examples of Izdiharona for Economic Development's clients.
