I used the loan I got from MFW to buy supplies in order to make my swings and sell my products. I rented a space as my project and customer base grew. I even have customers in the West Bank!

Abeer sought the help of Microfund for Women hoping she can increase her income to support her family of nine further.
She faces many challenges; the most prominent one is society’s prejudice towards working women. Because of the current pandemic, Abeer could no longer leave her house to market her clothes to the women in her neighborhood due to the pandemic.
When asked about her experience with Microfund for Women, Abeer praised it and further explained how she managed to obtain several loans throughout the years, which helped grow her business and increase her overall income.
Abeer encourages all the women in her community to learn more about Microfund for Women’s services to help improve businesses.
