Fatheyah Diab a typical case of Syrian displaced woman struggling for survival

Women's profile

Fatheyah Hussein Diab, a woman displaced from Syria earlier this year along with her 3 children and her handicapped husband, decided to learn how to sew and joined a course offered by a Lebanese association. After learning the basics of the trade, she bought a sewing machine with some money she borrowed and started working straight away to pay off the debt.  Diab did not want to “embarrass her husband or humiliate him in any way”. Diab works 10 hours per day and produces around three dresses daily.  She sells her dresses to women farmers at circa LBP 5,000 a piece and hence earns between $5 and $10 a day.  Diab is working to gain more experience in hopes to expand her business.
