Samira harnessed her interest, passion, and knowledge in cosmetics and makeup to start her own business selling accessories alongside makeup, which secured extra income for her and her family.
The 38-year-old Samira revealed that what made her start this business is when her family of 5 plumped the depth of their financial status. She added that this business wouldn’t have seen the light of success if it wasn’t for the financial support of Microfund for Women.
Samira said that her experience with Microfund for Women was exquisite as the staff was professional, and she emphasized that this motivated her to seek more help to kickstart her project and start supporting her family more.
