Hana H

To kickstart her home-based business selling lupin and fava beans off a cart, Hana resorted to Microfund for women to obtain a loan to help her buy the necessary materials and equipment.

Her business flourished where it becomes a vital source of income for her family, despite the challenges she faced exemplified by her husband’s prejudice to the business, the pandemic impact, and complaints she received from the neighbors for the noise the children made when gathering around her cart.

Hana described her experience with Microfund for Women as a success story. She further praised the emotional and financial support she received from them, stating that this support was the key to the success of her humble business.
