I make a living off of my family coffee kiosk. However, with all the electric appliances used in the business, most of the profit went to the energy expenditure. With Taqati loan, I installed a solar energy system which helped decrease my energy bills while my household income increased!

Widad did not have the opportunity to work in the field of her major, but her insistence and willingness to do something and take advantage of her time and to support her family on the other led her to seek the help of Microfund for Women, which the latter provided her with the necessary financial support to start pickles and fruit-drying business.
Today, Widad’s business plays a significant role in improving the financial status of her family, who are very supportive of her and her business, and she hopes that she will be able to expand this business and participate in the most significant possible number of bazaars and fairs, as she knows that this is the best way for marketing and promoting her products.
She describes her experience with Microfund for Women as an amazing one and encourages every woman not to sit idly by and pursue their business to improve their family’s economic status.
