Welcome to Ikbal’s bakery!

Welcome to Ikbal’s bakery!Want to try her famous, delicious thin Syrian bread?

Shrewd businesswoman Ikbal runs a prosperous bakery in Sweida, Syria, two years after applying for one of our small business grants, and completing our business skills course. Despite not finishing school, and being forced to flee her home in rural Damascus, Ikbal is now able to support her two sons and pay her rent.

Although Ikbal is making the best of life, she hopes for a peaceful resolution to the crisis, and to return to her home in rural Damascus.
