A loan of $700 helped to purchase grain for his milling business so as to improve his standard of living.

Mohammed's story

Mohammed is a 26-year-old married man who lives in Sana`a, Yemen. He has a mill ("tahoun") and has been involved in purchasing grains then selling them to his customers after milling. He started his business because it has fast sales in the market and is attractive to business partners. He works at the business from 7:00 am until 7:30 pm, 7 days per week. He is an incredibly hard-working man and as a result has a lot of experience. In addition, it is the only main source of his income. On the other hand, through lots of effort, he has managed to grind his customer`s grain, i.e., he provides them a service to put food on the table. Recently, he says that the main challenge to his business is a seasonal problem: during the dry season this type of product is very expensive.

So, Mohammed took out a loan of 150,000 YER from AMB in order to purchase grain for his business. He hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow him to improve his standard of living.

In the future, he would like to expand his business to have a extra mill store because his region is lacking some services which he could supply to solve people's needs.
