Mousa's story

Mousa is a 26-year-old single man, living with his family in their own house in Hodeidah, Yemen. He studied until the elementary level, but he couldn't complete his studies. Mousa has spent many years as a driver of a rented bus. The amount that he earned from this business was very low and not enough to cover all the expenses of his family. He has sold all his mother's jewelry in order to begin his own business, purchasing a bus for transportation. This bus is Mousa's sole income source. He earns good profits from this business. Mousa is very active and dynamic man. He is a talented and respected professional man. He works 19 hour daily, Sunday to Sunday. He spends most of his time in this business. His bus is very old and doesn't work well. It needs repairs and maintenance. For this reason, Mousa is requesting a loan of 196,000 YER from AMB in order to purchase tires and spare parts for the bus. Mousa looks forward to completing his studies in the university and becoming an employee in the public sector.
