Ahmed's story

Ahmed is 31 years old, married and the father of four children who live in Aden, Yemen. His educational background is Bachelor of Commerce.

Ahmed is very hardworking. With much great effort and dedication, he managed to save money and forge his business, which today is a general store. He works around 12 hours daily. He said that without sacrifice, there is no reward and if one wants to get ahead, you have to do what you can. He believes that his business is going well because his family is his best motivation. Additionally, they are very close and all cooperate in order to move forward. Due to the bad situation in Yemen, his business is unable to increase profits as he did previously, so he applied for a loan of 100,000 YER from AMB to buy more merchandise such as soft drinks, breads, chocolates, eggs, beans and milk to be able to offer a wider variety of products. With this loan, he will be able to have increased profits in order to achieve his goal.

In the future, he hopes to give his profession to his children and better the quality of life for his family.
