During the opening ceremony of an exhibition featuring small business products, Mustafa emphasized the importance of such events in transitioning families from receiving financial aid to generating their own.
This, she said, is done through job creation and economic empowerment for women.

A group of families currently receiving aid from the National Aid Fund are participating in the exhibition.

The minister also highlighted the need for small enterprises to become larger ones in the future, and emphasized the importance of marketing products globally, seeing as they are of high quality.

The exhibition, which is being held in Jordan, is being funded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation and led by the Danish Refugee Council, in partnership with the Jordan River Foundation and Mercy Corps.

Some 130 small businesses from various governorates in Jordan are participating in the exhibition, which provides them with a new space to display and sell their products, network with available economic opportunities, and access and compete in the labor market.
