Ra’eda is a 42-year-old married woman; she has five children, and four of them attend primary school. With this big family, in 2009 she thought to do something to contribute to the family income, as her husband’s income alone is not sufficient to fulfill the demands of his family members. From 2009 until now, she has worked in her cosmetics shop, where she earns $541 monthly.

Her dream is to open a business with a large number of employees working in her business to give them the opportunity to work and get income.

Ra’eda is asking Ryada for this loan to buy shelves and make some changes to her shop to attract customers. She is very grateful to everyone who helps her to achieve success.

The person who appears in the picture is Ra’eda’s husband since she refused to appear in a picture due to cultural manners.
