A loan of $375 helped to buy a mixer for kneading dough.


Reyhan's story

Reyhan is married and is the mother of two grown children. She also has grandchildren.

For 25 years, Reyhan has made dumplings, phyllo sheets, tomato paste, tomato sauce and jams at home. At first she began selling them to her circle of friends, but as people got to know her products, her customer base increased, and she now even receives orders from Istanbul. With the loan from Maya, Reyhan intends to buy a mixer for kneading dough. “I did it by hand [for a long time] and my arms now hurt. A mixer will make things easier for me,” she said. It will also help her to work faster. Her dream is to one day open a shop and sell her products there.
