Carmen, West Bank

Carmen Dweikat is one of nearly fifty women who started their own business in 2013 with Near East Foundation support. The new businesses have created nearly 100 new jobs.

It was only September of 2013 when Carmen, a young student finishing her Computer Programming degree, became inspired to change her future. While she had always loved making henna artwork and took every opportunity to practice and perfect her abilities, she had never considered starting her own business to do it full-time.
