Abstract

This chapter highlights the refugee crisis that erupted in Syria in 2011 and continues to impact Syrian lives within that country and in neighboring countries. It does so by focusing on one Syrian refugee’s story of resilience and survival through entrepreneurship in Amman, Jordan. The chapter discusses her history in her hometown of Homs as a content housewife and mother and how the war led her to lose everything except what mattered most: her family. The chapter also walks us through her life after fleeing to Jordan and narrates her evolving role from wife and mother to breadwinner in a place where she was bounded by state and institutional regulations, yet felt empowered by a generous community.
