Through the tremendous support I have received from Microfund for Women, I managed to market my clay business and reach more customers.

Siwar Hussein

I work in trade, as a woman who buys items from stores and resells them. I go to stores, take pictures of items and sell them to women by adding a reasonable profit margin. I live in Hussein Refugee camp where people’s income is very low, they usually buy by credit and not cash.

I have been with MFW for 12 years, and thanks to them, I have been able to afford the items that I am reselling, and I have been able to buy my kids more of the items that they would like to have, I have also been able to refurnish my house. My job makes me feel more empowered than the women around me since I have a job and I am the main provider for my family. Through this job, I have learned very important lessons such as, no one can lie to me and I should always take what I deserve. I believe that my great fashion sense is what allowed to thrive off of my project. This humble project enabled me to assure a better life for my two kids and I.
