After becoming the sole provider for his family, Samer managed to provide for them through his idea to open a shop to sell clothes and accessories and few makeup products and women perfumes.
The 37-year-old Samer said that he managed to turn his idea into a real business after receiving his first funding from Microfund for Women, followed by several other funding that mounted up to almost 7 JDs that allowed him to expand his business and increase his profit margin.
