The needs of her large family, consisting of 9 individuals, have made her think about a business that can support her husband and contributes to the cost of her children’s various daily needs and essentials.

Manal started her business about a year ago. She benefited from the funds of Microfund for Women to purchase kitchen supplies and raw materials to start making all sorts of food and sweets.

And today, Manal is making donuts and pastries and receiving many orders from cafes and schools, which turned this business into the primary source of income for the family. She considered Microfund for Women to be the cornerstone of her project and encourages women to start their businesses and face all the challenges with force and determination.
