Bana realized that she had a role to play in helping and supporting her husband with the increasing expenses of her large family of 7. So, she thought about what she could do from inside her home without affecting her duties to her family; hence the meal preparation business began.
Bana sought the help of Microfund for Women, which provided her with the necessary funding several times to purchase some of the equipment and raw materials for food production.
Today her business is a crucial player in supporting her family financially. She aspires to have an independent restaurant in the future.
Bana describes her experience with Microfund for Women as a “special experience” and encourages women to set up their businesses, saying: it all starts with you.
