Before Shekra, Carmen worked as a manager for Diwan Bookstores. Prior to that she was a financial accountant for Lufthansa in Cologne. She received her MBA in strategic management from the University of Applied Sciences Bonn, with a focus on e-commerce in Egypt.

Shekra is the first MENA equity-based crowdfunding initiative providing sharia-compliant funding services by relying on a closed network of investors. It aims to reduce the funding gap that exists for amounts too large for microfinance, too risky for banks and too small for venture capitalists.
