A loan of $475 helped to buy felt, beads and thread.


Meryem's story

Meryem is married and has three adult children. Four years ago she learned that Maya gave loans to women who worked or wanted to work from home. She applied and was approved. She took out three loans. She sold knitwork, felt bags and knickknacks she made from home and a stand. She has contributed to the economy of her home and her country for three years.

Meryem is applying for a 1,000 TRY loan, with which she will buy felt, beads and thread to make products to sell. She wants both to make money and make good use of her time. Translated from Turkish by Maya Staff
