Reem worked for years from her home as a tailor using a humble sewing machine, but she had this longing to grow and expand to create better income for her and her family.
She heard about MFW’s services through her neighbor and applied for a loan. Reem took a Tadamon Loan and then a Tatweer Loan to expand the project and purchase a new sewing machine and a variety of fabrics.
Today, her project is a primary source of income for her family. Despite the challenging financial situation and her family’s opposition to the idea initially, she is still persistent and moving towards her goal with a strong will. Reem dreams of owning a Tailor shop in the future.
Reem described her experience with MFW as impressive since the company played a significant role in her development personally in terms of capacity building and financially through the loans. Encouraging women around her, she said: “You should work and do what you can to achieve your ambition.”
