Many local producers in the MENA region experience difficulty marketing and selling their products for a variety of reasons. Some live in rural parts of the country without easy access to city markets, some work simultaneously as full-time homemakers, and some struggle to access the internet as a tool for growth. Souq Fann was established as a social enterprise organisation in 2018 in order to eliminate some of these economic-growth barriers for deserving small-business owners and start-ups. Souq Fann is a place for those with an abundance of talent to gather in order to share their work with the world.
We exist to help our vendors achieve their goals by giving them access to new markets around the world, connecting them with new customers and increasing their sales. On our site, you will find hundreds of high-quality, locally-produced, and environmentally-conscious goods, gifts, and treasures. Each product has a story to tell about the person (or people) who created it. Just as with each item, each story is unique. Souq Fann gives customers a glimpse into the rich history and culture of communities across the Arab region.
Since its launch in 2018, Souq Fann has supported and promoted the work of more than 60 creative producers, which includes more than 1.000 unique products. In February 2018, Souq Fann received an award in Dubai at the World Government Summit for its role in contributing to the boost of the local economy. In July 2018, Souq Fann celebrates its 1st anniversary and is excited about the future growth of the organisation!
