Woman carpenter in Jordan

(November 15, 2013)

Meet Aida:

She is the first female carpenter in all of Jordan. 

Aida says it was difficult at first. People said that women can't do such things. But Aida believes part of the reason the employment rate is high in Jordan is because people don't explore all career options.

But now, people are used to the idea, and her kids come to help her. All the shelves, drawers, and little birdhouse-looking things are Aida's handicrafts.

And she even wants to expand and hire workers! That is awesome!
