Um Baha’ lives in Naour and has 6 children. The family income is 60JD from the husbands retirement pension with the oldest 2 brothers helping out a little bit from their income.
Um Baha’s idea for a small project that she can handle from home is to buy a few sheep and use them in trade to buy and sell for a higher cost from now until early April in which she will start to milk them, make yogurt and cheese, and sell these 3 products. The good thing about this project is that she can do all of this at home and has a wide market within her neighborhood to sell the milk and its products. Um Baha’ has experience with making these products, she has the time and the place, the market as well, all she needs is the financial support to start her small business.
Om Baha’ will join UMOT within the micro finance program to receive financial support for her project for the first 6 months and then pay only 40% of that back during the 4 months after.
