Nora is 20 years of age; she is single and studies commerce at Helwan University. She is also enrolled in accounting diploma at Cairo University and in her summer vacations; she takes courses in computer and English.  She joined Al Tadamun Microfinance Foundation in 2014 with a loan size LE 1,500 and her current loan is LE 2,000.

She participated in “Buy Egyptian Products” Exhibition, which took place at the Cairo Fair Grounds in Nasr City, as one of the exhibitors in Al Tadamun Microfinance Foundation’s booth.

It was an opportunity for her to display her products to different clients and she was able to generate sufficient sales during her days in the exhibition.

Her project is producing accessories. She decided to work when she needed money for her education. She started working in an accessories workshop where she produced a dozen of accessories for LE 2. She realized that this money was not sufficient enough, so she decided to manage her own project.
