EIWT Basra Widows Awarded Grants: November 2011


With IF’s assistance, seven widows from Shat Al Arab, Basra were awarded grants to start their own small businesses during November by an international organization. The grants helped four participates to purchase small supplies and house hold items, such as pots and pans, to start small family owned stores run out of their homes.  These neighborhood shops supply neighborhoods with basic household good and small appliances such as kitchenware and other needs.  Three widows received sewing equipment and other necessary equipment and materials to run a small sewing shop from their homes as a result of these small grants.
