How I built a business a few years after coming to the U.S. as a refugee

Hanifa Javadi is the owner and founder of Free Women, a sewing and handicraft business based in Salt Lake City, Utah, that has become a successful side hustle for Javadi and other refugees in the state. In under two years, Free Women brought in $130,000 and employed close to 30 women, who all earned an average of $2,000. Javadi earned about $23,000 from Free Women from 2020 to 2021.
