Since she was young, she had a great passion for skincare products and natural soap. She was taught by a chemist how to mix natural materials and their effect on the skin. She took several courses and taught herself more about soap manufacturing.
Taghreed sought the help of Microfund for Women and obtained several funds that helped her purchase the materials she needed to make her soap. And now, she became known for her handmade soap while maintaining her daytime job.
Taghreed participates in many bazaars through Microfund for Women. Also, she benefited from the crash course MFW provided on how to properly package her products which encouraged Taghreed to register her business trademark that has the name of her daughter Lolia. Taghreed also sells her products in Souk Baladna, at Swefieh Village / HotSpot.
