Since she was knee-high, Bayan had a passion for cooking, especially for her family. After getting married, Bayan wanted to start her project to support her husband with the increasing household expenses. Therefore, she started a meal preparation business that many women in her community now rely on for food delivery, especially the employees. And now she is proudly talking about her success in helping her husband because a man and his wife are equal in this life, and they should support each other.

As for her experience with Microfund for Women, she says: “Excellent. I had an idea, and I needed financial support, which I was able to obtain with much ease, as well as the guidance the employees provided to help me make better choices for my business and depend on myself to grow this business more and more.” And as a word of encouragement for the women in her community, she said: Willpower and determination are the keys to success, and to achieve peace of mind and be financially stable.
