Abdullah's story

Abdullah is 35 years old, a married man who has six children, three of them in school. To make a living, he owns & operates a bookstore. The main source of income for the business comes from selling a variety of different products in the local community. He has been in this business for over 10 years.

He started his business with limited capital with which he purchased a plot of land in his area, then he worked hard to look after his young brothers. He gained access to financial services to help improve his living situation and ability to improve business activities.

He is very friendly and has already gained some permanent customers. He helps himself by bringing in new goods from another city such as stereos, cosmetics, and perfumes. Due to the current bad situation which Yemen has met, however, his business has had lower profits and fewer customers. So, he requested a loan of 200,000 YER from AMB to buy additional inventory & use as working capital for books, toys, and cosmetics so that will increase his sales since this type of product is very popular.

He plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to supplement the family's income as well as his dream to see his brothers get married.
