Fatima was born in Bashiqa, a village in the Ninewa Plains. She was forced to marry her cousin when she was just 17. After her husband died in a car accident, family custom dictated that she marry his brother. Her family refused to let her complete college studies because she had three children. She joined Prosperity Catalyst to learn a new skill and loves how much confidence it has given her.
"Work has shown me the blessings I have. I have so much confidence and am so happy. My husband is proud of me and even offers to watch the children so I can go to work. My partner loves, respects, and supports me, which has helped me grow." - Fatima Abbas
