    After studying business administration and working as a financial auditor for one year, I decided to turn to the microfinance sector, in a desire to bring meaning to my daily work. A complementary master in microfinance combined with internships in this field convinced me to persevere in this sector, towards a job in the field. As a leader in microcredit in Belgium and with a dynamic spirit, microStart appeared to be a logical choice in my search. Since January 2018, I have been working there at the operational level in order to try to help as many entrepreneurs as possible to realise their dream.

    I studied law and worked as a lawyer in Syria, specialising in company law and banking law. Driven by my passion for economics and entrepreneurship, I followed the Master in Business Economics at Ghent University. Through my work in the social sector, I became aware of people's needs and the importance for society that people can rely on each other and trust each other. microStart is not only a financial institution, it is also a gateway to social and economic participation for motivated people who do not have enough resources to achieve their dreams. Helping people is a precious goal for me, that's why I immediately got involved in this position of microcredit advisor at microStart, where solidarity, respect and equality are essential.

    After completing my Master's degree in Management and Marketing, the job search was a turning point for me. I realised that I wanted to work in a company where social impact prevails but where I can also use my business knowledge to the maximum. When I first heard about MicroStart, it sounded like a great success. This is still the case today. Because I can combine my social skills with my business acumen, I try to make the most of every day to help all those who want to realise their entrepreneurial dream.
