Your support helped Amani’s small business take off!

When Amani moved to the United States from Libya, finding clothing that suited her family of practicing Muslims was a struggle. The young mother saw an opportunity in the challenge. Amani opened the RMR store, named for her three children’s initials, and began selling inclusive clothing and accessories.

Her products quickly became popular, but her limited English skills made it hard to communicate with her customers and limited her business. After studying at The ILC, she can now confidently chat with customers who include U.S.-born Americans and immigrants from around the world (including one of her classmates!).

In addition to learning English, Amani recently gained her citizenship with the help of The ILC’s citizenship classes. She says, “Thank you for this, [Immigrant] Learning Center. It’s helping me too much. Thank you for your time, thank you for everyone who has time for us. Thank you, thank you so much.”

When you make time for our immigrant students, you change their lives. Thank you for your support.
