In 2016, my husband and I formed the company, and bought new machines to add to ones he already had. Passionate about manufacturing and entrepreneurship, I began looking for funds to expand the business. I took care of the commercial side, and we focused our business on repairing fishing boats. This sector is dominated by men, but my know-how and understanding of the products impressed our business partners. My husband and I used our complementary skills to build the business and develop a strong client portfolio.
The COVID-19 Enterprise Recovery Fund, established by the US government as part of the Tunisia JOBS program, helped me train two new employees and invest in a machine that will allow me to break into the waste management sector.
