Nabila wanted to renovate and expand her restaurant (Bait Sitti) in Jerash; therefore, she sought the help of Microfund for Women, which gave her the needed loan to buy the equipment and furniture she wanted for her restaurant.

But her restaurant’s early days weren’t as easy as she expected, she faced several challenges such as marketing for the restaurant and the fact that her family was somehow opposed to the idea of her staying outside her home for many hours during the day, but she overcame these challenges and made a massive success in her business and managed to expand her restaurant.

According to her, she describes her experience with Microfund for Women as easy and hassle-free, and the employees are very professional and fantastic to deal with.
