“Chocolate has always been and still is what makes me happy, so eating it increases my heart rate!” That’s how the 55-year-old Samar describes her love of chocolate.
She adds, “I never had a chance to learn how to make chocolate at home until I took part in a training session on homemade chocolate here in Tripoli, Abu Samra area. I loved the idea and I started working on making delicious and very nutritious chocolate for my family, using basic kitchen tools.
After that, I applied for the WEE.CAN grant through URDA to develop my own small business and manage to purchase all the materials and equipment necessary to develop my work.
I thank AICS, COSPE OXFAM and URDA from the bottom of my heart because without their support, the idea of developing this “Happiness Chocolate” project would have been impossible!
