I do all my work by hand with the support of the women I trained. My dream is to expand my project and for everyone to know my work.

Abeer Al Halaibeh became the sole provider for her family, as her husband was living outside Jordan. She realized that her salary barely covers her family of six basic needs; that was why she resorted to Microfund for Women to obtain a fund where she used the money to buy the material she needed to start her crafting and embroidery business.
Today, her humble business contributes to improving the financial status of her family, covering specific expenses. Abeer is ambitious and plans to expand and develop her business to turn it into a shop to provide job opportunities to the women in her community.
When asked about her experience with Microfund for Women, Abeer said, “It’s a wonderful experience; they provided me with the needed emotional and financial support I needed to start my business; without their encouragement, I wouldn’t have had succeeded.”
“I encourage all women to pursue their dreams and turn them into reality because an idea will remain an idea if not turned into a reality!”
