Leah’s Clothing Boutique

In 2010, I established my boutique fabric store, Scotty, located in Ashdod. Our store encompasses diverse departments, including fabrics and accessories, specifically designed to meet the needs of sewing students and seamstresses. Unfortunately, the shop was forced to close due to the war  as we had just opened after the holidays and the onset of winter, the peak season for winter fabric sales.We need help to pay suppliers.  

My impact loan status:

$26,988 / $26,988

Micro lending, Macro Impact

A loan is required due to the financial strain caused by the war which coincided with the end of the Tishrei holidays and the onset of winter, the peak season for winter fabric sales. The closure of the store by order of the Home Front Command and the pressing financial obligations to suppliers for winter products purchased have created a need for financial support.

My business - My spark

Established in 2010 in Ashdod, Scotty is a boutique fabric store catering to sewing students and seamstresses. Offering a diverse range of departments, including fabrics and accessories, the store has expanded to include a private line of tablecloths introduced during the Corona period
