A loan of $475 helped to buy personal care products like lotions, creams, shampoo and make-up.

Amal's story

Amal is 26 years old. She lives in Taiz, Yemen and characterizes herself as being a very hardworking hairdresser. For some time now, she has worked in a company selling cosmetics. With the impetus of helping her family with the household income, Amal decided to open a beauty salon that would provide more generalized services related to skin health, facial aesthetics, foot care, even meditation and other services.

Because she is a professional in her field, she actually has made more profit from customers who prefer to style their hair.

Due to the current bad situation in Yemen, almost all of her clients left to their villages and didn't have any interest in coming to her business when having weddings, which caused her business to stop.

Now she applied for a youth loan of 100,000 Yemeni Rial (YER) from AMB. This is why she has the hope that a loan will afford her the opportunity to buy personal care products for her business like lotions, creams, shampoo and make-up, among other things, that she hopes will make her customers return.

In the future, Amal dreams that her business will continue to provide income in order to help her family with the household income, and that way, provide a better quality of life. She also dreams of having a big store where she could hire many girls who are in need of work over there.
