    HIYAM MUHSIN

    With only a grade school education and very little work-experience, Hiyam was suddenly faced with the responsibility of supporting her family when her husband became disabled in 1997. Though she had dreamed of attending college and having a successful career, her traditional marriage prevented her from fulfilling those dreams. In 2009 she learned about the opportunity to become trained in candle-making and for Hiyam, this opportunity has launched a career.

    "A candle gives light to others. My first candle gave me this impression and every time I make candles I feel a joy." - Hiyam Muhsin, August 2015
