Nujoud wanted to improve her family’s living situation and have an income to cover her various needs. So she took many courses in beauty, makeup, skincare, and hairdressing. Still, she couldn’t have her salon for the lack of proper financial resources.

She sought the help of Microfund for Women, which the latter encouraged her to take advantage of her hairdressing talent and knowledge and provided her with funding to open her beauty parlor.

Today, she is proud of her success with her beauty parlor, despite the great competition in her region. She aspires to be a known name in the beauty industry and grow her business more all across Jordan.
