In his long journey to battle poverty and the lack of job opportunities, Ahmad decided to pave his own way out of his harsh financial conditions by opening a barbershop for men and children. He put his heart and soul in this shop that soon became the sole source of income for him and his family of three.

The 27-year-old Ahmad Al Qudah describes his shop as a humble business that wouldn’t have flourished without the help of Microfund for Women that allowed him to turn his plan into reality.
