Reem not only watched her husband and son during their work at their glass workshop. However, she wanted to provide more significant support. So, she obtained numerous funds from Microfund for Women, which was used to develop the family business and add the mirror manufacturing after learning the profession from her husband and son.
Today, she works with them day and night, defying society’s perception, as she works in a profession that is the exclusive preserve of men. In addition, she contributes to supporting her family of 7.
As for her experience with Microfund for Women, Reem says, “It’s a wonderful experience that supports me both financially and non-financially.”
Working is empowerment; go for it!
