Ma7al’ha - About the Program

Home > Initiatives > Ma7al’ha 


Taking inspiration from Lahunna Oman, "Ma7al’ha," which translates to "her place" in English, cleverly encompasses both "her shop" and "her place" within the business community and society at large. The logo itself symbolizes that women hold the key to unlocking boundless opportunities.

To mark Omani Women's Day in 2022, Lahunna collaborated with City Centre Muscat to launch this initiative aimed at recognizing and celebrating small businesses led by Omani women. This initiative drew in more than 100 applicants, from which 13 were selected to exhibit their products at City Centre Muscat for a week. The event was inaugurated by Her Excellency Halima Al Zari, Chairperson of the Authority for SME Development.

This partnership not only provided these small businesses with a broader platform to expand their customer base but also offered them the chance to step onto a bigger stage and aspire to become tomorrow's super brands.
