Tayour Aljana/ Abeer Group's story

The six members of the TAYOUR ALJANA/ ABEER group are mainly married women and are named Nour, Afrah, Khadijah, Rahmah, Wardah and Halimah. They are 32-50 years of age and have three to eight children each. All of them live a working-class neighborhood of the city of Aden (the economic capital of Yemen). Their community is in a rural area surrounded by the field with the clothes markets. and they have many clients, mostly women. The whole group took out a loan of 300,000 YER.

Nour, the coordinator of her group, is wearing a red veil ("hijab") and has a hand-bag in the photo. She is 50 years old. She has operated a business selling fabrics, veils, scarfs and various clothes for twenty years. She will use her loan to purchase some clothing to sell to women.

Nour`s most important challenges are to work hard to gain extra income and to better her business structure. She is receiving a loan of 50,000 YER from AMB and, because her loan repayments have all been made punctually, she has been able to grow her business with the reinvestment she makes from each loan.

In the future, Nour would like to save her profit to start building her house.

In this group: Nour, Afrah, Khadijah, Rahmah, Wardah, Halimah
