To afford living and experience independence, Ruqayyah started a tailoring and embroidery business that provided her with an income to pay off her basic needs.

The 23-year-old Ruqayyah said that the loan she took from Microfund for women enabled her to kickstart her business from the comfort of her home in As-Salt.

And she continued by describing her experience with Microfund for Women as a wonderful one that contributed to the development of her business and allowed her to buy all the materials and tools she needed to produce perfect handmade pieces, leading to an increase in the profit margin.
