Lebanon - women entrepreneurs, workers and small business owners

Najwa Krishk Mortada co-owns a wheat processing shop with her husband. The machines are dangerous and this means they don’t want to employ anybody else. They work alone and trust each other. The work is seasonal - just three months of the year during the harvest. She is happy to have her work close to her house and to work alongside her husband.
