With a small plan, I could support my family, and through Microfund for Women’s platforms, I was able to market my business to expand it and help more families in need.

Sanaa sought to help and support her husband in providing for their family and covering their expenses. So she decided to employ her cooking skills and start a production kitchen to serve different types of home-cooked food to working mothers, neighbors and relatives.
Sanaa went to MFW and received the loan she needed to purchase the materials for her project. The company also helped her market her project on different social media platforms.
Some of the many challenges she faced were marketing, managing her time between her work, house chores and other obligations, and not receiving money from her customers, which caused her financial troubles.
Despite all of that, Sanaa is still going strong, and she dreams of having a production kitchen outside their house to increase her production capacity. She praises MFW for giving her an excellent and convenient experience.
