Mariam’s Story

Meet Mariam Tawfeeq Matlaq, a plumber from Zarqa town, north of Jordan’s capital, where she lives with her three daughters and son. Through Oxfam’s gracious support, Mariam was able to kickstart her plumbing business and open her hardware shop in North Amman. As a result, Mariam has created employment opportunities for her community. She now provides training for women to develop their skills as a plumber and employs both women and men alike.

“I’m a plumber, and I like it a lot. I especially like the challenges I face. I was selected by Oxfam to train other women to be plumbers and to open my hardware shop. I get enough business for it to be worthwhile having the shop, and it’s a growing business.” – Mariam Tawfeeq Matlaq, Jordan
