A loan of $1,200 helped a loan of $1,200 helped Zainab to buy makeup and renovate her workplace.

Zainab's story

Zainab is a 37-year-old divorced woman. She has three children. After her divorce, she was left with three mouths to feed. Zainab had to look forward and continue supporting her family. Fortunately she had a beauty salon. Her customers thank her for the quality of her work and affordable prices.

When Zainab heard about Izdiharona's qard hassan product (without interest) for divorced women she took a loan to buy makeup and renovate her workplace to reduce her work hours and increase her profit. She is aiming to increase her profit to provide the best life for her children.

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

Zeinab preferred to have her face blurred in the photo for cultural reasons.
