Join us in uncovering the experiences of a mother-daughter owned business in a fragile and conflict‑affected country.

Promoting women-owned businesses and trade for peace in Somalia, Hanan Warsame and her mother, Istarlin Ali Mohamed, share their experience as women entrepreneurs in an area where conflict is prevalent.
