© UNHCR/Saad Sawas, 15 Jul 2022
After having fled her home with her family eight years, ago, Amina, mother of six, decided recently to return with her children to her home in Ar-Rastan city, Homs Governorate. The sole breadwinner of her family, Amina, a bright, optimistic and energetic 43-year old, decided to start her own business, and, with help from UNHCR, is now running a thriving store that helps her secure much needed income for her family. Her only wish is to continue to be able to support all her children, girls and boys, through school.
