Madina Group's story

This is a group of women with initiative, values and good proposals on how to conduct business nowadays. The group is called "MADINA" and consists of six members: Aisha, Fatima, Aml, Gohra, Fatima and Madina. They live in Aden, Yemen and each is interested in developing her business. They requested a loan of 300,000 YER. Madina is the group leader (she is located in the center of the group, wearing a black and yellow wrap with her face showing.) This group is called by her name. She is aged 57, married, and the mother of seven adult children. Her business is selling clothes, which has been her sole source of income for over ten years. She began this activity as a result of the lack of a clothes market in her neighborhood. She is very grateful to her neighbors who supported her over all these years. With the income from her business she has been able to upgrade her home and enjoy more comfort. At the present time, her business doesn't get her a lot of profit due to the bad situation in Yemen. So she applied for the loan of 50,000 YER from AMB to acquire articles of clothing such as dresses, shirts, pants, skirts, shoes, etc. to sell to her customers thus giving her the opportunity to improve her income from her business. In the future she would like to buy a house with a store in it in order to expand her activity.

In this group: Madina, Fatima, Aisha, Gohra, Aml, Fatima
