Entesar Asaker (36) is a Syrian entrepreneur in Jordan. Her company, Mafaz for Medical Equipment and Devices, imports prosthetics and orthotics from Germany to Jordan. In 5 years, she has built a sustainable business with a great network abroad. In addition, she consults and trains staff of hospitals and centers, which install the prostheses and work closely with patients.
In 2018, Entesar joined the SME programme Taqaddam, facilitated by SPARK, to develop a physiotherapy gym in which the physically injured can workout. The programme helped her in identifying her business’s strengths and weaknesses through a business academy, along with one-on-one coaching with experts.
