195 - Empowering a woman in Alqosh with her clothing shop

“If a woman wants to do something, she’s able to do it. We shouldn’t say women are incapable. If she’s confident in herself, she can achieve anything,” says Mona. Greetings from Alqosh where we just finished renovating a female-operated business. Mona always dreamed of having her own business in order to provide for her 3 children. After borrowing money, she finally opened her clothing store next to her home, but without much inventory and no money for upgrades, the business did not do well. Shlama Foundation brought Mona's dream to life as we installed windows, door, signage, racks outdoor sign and stocked the store up with inventory. Thank you from the homeland!
