Summary

Chapter 7 describes the continued development of the three entrepreneurs' ventures and the impact they make on the Za'atari community. Za'atari increasingly shows signs of life: shops pop up along the main road nicknamed the “Shams-Élysées," color and art can be seen on trailers and the camp's walls, social events become more common, and social initiatives occupy children’s time. Yasmina moves her business from her home to the bustling Saudi Market, beautifully decorates her new trailer, and expands her client base as her and Mona's reputation grows. Asma’s storytelling initiative, with the support of her apprentice Nawara, increases in popularity and regularly fills her trailer with children. She begins to see the fruits of her work, as the activities she does with the children reveal more aspirational thinking. Though she had planned to ignore art during school to focus on studies, Malak again turns to art as an outlet during the intensity of university. After winning prizes in competitions and with Treza’s inspiration, Malak finally launches her studio: "Malak Art." Malak and Treza create Instagram and Facebook pages to share Malak's work and accept orders, which come in regularly.
