Atayeb el Rif Program

Angele Ishak / Dier el Ahmar Coop


Angele began a business after being trained by YMCA Lebanon through Atayeb Al Rif.  She formed a production center and today leads over 40 women in producing high quality goods. She has been so successful, she was able to hire 20 women and supply them with a monthly income.  During the summer Angele also provides part time jobs for college students.



After her experience with Atayeb al Rif, she went from being a trainee to a trainer on food processing.  In 2015 she became Secretary of the Board for the Atayeb Al Rif cooperative.
