Financial Independence in Jordan

Israa, age 23, began her path toward financial independence when she joined the bookkeeping training offered through EquipYouth, an initiative of the International Youth Foundation. The six-month training consisted of three parts: life skills instruction, technical training and an internship. Upon completion, Israa received a job offer from IKEA. Today, Israa has great ambitions. "In five years, I hope to become a shop owner." She adds, "I want to buy a car, an apartment and fully establish myself financially."
