Adel's story

Adel is a 50-year-old man who is always cheerful in his everyday life, according to the residents of his neighborhood. It is in this neighborhood where he got married and where his first child was born. Adel is the father of 11 children. The burden is becoming heavier than ever, as he needs to cover his children's expenses in terms of living, education, and other things required by the big family.

Adel started his business long ago in order to cover the big expenses imposed by his big family. His business was initially a cafe shop that didn't require a large amount of capital except to purchase kilos of sugar and tea. This business achieved a good reputation in old Sana'a, where it is located, and many people became regulars. Adel's family life was somewhat improved by the limited income of that cafe, but Adel did not stop at this point. He had some thoughts about further enlarging his business by opening another shop next to the cafe for selling cabab, which is a publicly sold food eaten as breakfast.

Adel was in need of a loan to start the other business and visited one of Al-Amal Bank's branches. He received three loans sequentially and this had a good impact on his business and family. Adel took the fourth loan of 180,000 YER from Al-Amal in order to pay the rent of the two shops and purchase needed materials like tea, sugar, new dishes, and tables for the cabab shop.

In the future, Adel hopes to expand his business by opening a restaurant selling all types of food, not only cabab. He also hopes to build a house for his family and children.
