I used the loan I got from MFW to buy supplies in order to make my swings and sell my products. I rented a space as my project and customer base grew. I even have customers in the West Bank!

Saleha wanted to take care of her son and pay off his medical bills and treatments as he suffers from a neurological disorder and he needs constant care and treatment, which costs much money. So she turned to Microfund for Women for the financial support she needed to buy the needed equipment and ingredients to open her bakery.
During her days, she faced many difficulties and challenges, the most important of which were: The health condition of her son as well as the difficulty she faced of persuading her other sons to get jobs, but she was able to move forward with the business, build a good reputation within her community and continue to live a decent life without the need for anyone.
As for her experience with Microfund for Women, she says, “MFW taught me commitment, and helped me build my confidence in myself ” and sends a message to every woman, “You have to work and make a positive change in your home.”
