A loan of $475 helped to purchase men's fabrics in order to stitch trousers and shirts for his business.


Ahmed's story

Ahmed is 37 years old, a married man who has six children and lives in Sana`a, Yemen. He has six years of experience in tailoring then selling men's clothing. He is able to choose appropriate merchandise because he has good taste.

He chose this business because it is very profitable and he has gained permanent clients over the years. He is friendly, polite and always gives a discount. He lives in a rented house which is expensive. He says the secret of his success is his shop's location, in the central bazaar.

Ahmed`s monthly income is not enough to cover his family's needs so he has applied for a loan of 100,000 YER from AMB to purchase men's fabrics in order to stitch trousers and shirts. He will use this loan to purchase new merchandise and diversify.

In the future, Ahmed would like to open branches of tailoring shops in all provinces of his country as well as have a house of his own.
