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.

Drawing is my hobby, especially love henna. I am really talented when it comes to drawing henna. So I decided to open a small shop with my mother. Today, my mother and I own a shop in the touristic part of salt, where we offer many handicrafts and henna services different. My mother and I took a loan from Microfund for Women for our shared project, this helped us buy the materials we needed to pursue our passion. Microfund for Women supported us in marketing and promoting our services.
This project helped us a lot, since we are the main providers for our family, we also decided to give back to our community. My mother now teaches physically challenged women to do some basic handicrafts for free, and I taught over 25 women to draw henna. It feels great!
