My project is a family craft heritage ever since 1850. With a loan from MFW, I bought the essential material, and they promoted my products that uphold a national identity.

To be able to contribute to the household expenses, Qout opened her own business to better the living situation of her family of 5.
To do so, Qout sought the help of Microfund for Women and took a fund that enabled her to buy livestock to start her home-based dairy products production business. Despite the challenges she faced embedded in her fear of failing, the lack of demand, and people preferring the factory-made dairy products over homemade ones, she managed to change their minds and turned them into loyal customers who praise her products for their quality, taste, and affordable price.
When asked about her experience with Microfund for Women, Qout eulogized their professionalism and good manners, as she encourages every woman to stand tall against all odds and believe in herself to start being a productive member of this society.
