A loan of $1,475 helped to buy straw and fabric for making baskets, trays, and clothing to offer for sale.


Nariman's story

Born in 1967, Nariman is a widow living with her four sons in a rented house in Marka, Jordan. Since the death of her husband, Nariman has been trying her best to cover her sons' everyday needs by sewing clothing at home as well as making trays and baskets out of straw. She then offers these items for sale to members of her community.

When her husband was alive and supporting the family, Nariman enjoyed making clothing, baskets, and trays as a hobby. She decided to expand these activities when she was widowed, and this enterprise has now been the family's only source of income for the past three years.

Nariman is requesting a loan in order to buy a larger quantity of straw and fabric. This will allow her to be better able to respond to customer demand.
