VPM Micro Credit Project

Project: Capital to buy stationary and other school materials for her small bookstore.

When Sabha Aburashed first started her business, she struggled to generate revenue and get the right people to fund her business.
"I have this burning desire to become an entrepreneur to help my family but my only challenge now is capital but now after Rowad funded me with soft halal loan from VPM I am able to help my kids.
"There is no bookstore in my area and I chose the right location for my business outside a secondary school" she said.
"Now I have money to feed my kids and to help them complete their college to help me in the future".
"Now I have daily revenue from my bookstore so i take a part from this money for daily family/business expenses and the rest for developing my business and repay my loan. I am working hard to ensure the project is sustainable and generates income to make my family proud of their Mum.
