Since she was knee-high to a grasshopper, she has been very skillful in crafts such as embroidery and sculptures and has decorated her house with the most beautiful artifacts, which have been admired by all who have visited her.
When she wanted to start a home business and put her talent and skill of embroidery into good use, she turned to Microfund for Women, which provided her with enough money to purchase a sewing machine.
Today, she looks back at the difficult road that led to the success of her business with so much love and pride despite the difficult economic situation she and her family are living in, mainly since her husband is a waged worker. The latter’s work is unstable and depends on the season and the difficulty of marketing her products to her neighborhood as many view these items as luxurious and unnecessary adding to any house.
She is thrilled with her experience with Microfund for Women, which supports and encourages her, including her in bazaars, which is a significant selling point for her, and calls on the ladies around her not to lose hope and to start with any simple projects to cope with the difficult conditions surrounding them. to reach success.
