Samia S

Years ago, Samia sought the help of Microfund for Women to get a loan to buy raw materials and the equipment she uses to manufacture soap; it is worth mentioning that her home-based business contributed to the household income significantly.

Samia named few challenges she faced during her journey that included the fear of society’s prejudice, the lack of proper marketing, and the fear that she at some point would neglect her family and children and failed in her duties as a mother.

When asked about her experience with Microfund for Women, Samia praised how helpful they were. The services they provided also made it easier for her to kickstart her business.
