Al-Boshra Group's story

This group is called Al-BOSHRA and consists of four members who are all females: Jamila, Sameera, Bushra and Fatima. All of them are friends and from Aden, Yemen. They primarily work together in small business like sewing. The group took a loan of 120,000 YER.

Jamila, 49, (she is the second women from the left with clothes on her lap) is a married woman with two children. She has designed and sold curtains, blinds, and dresses as well as mobile phones and decorations in general, since starting her business one year ago. Initially she only took on simple designs, but as she gradually became more skilled in decorative arts, she added more value to her work.

Currently she has clients that include important department stores. With the business she gets, she’s been able to expand her location and grow her infrastructure. The quality of her fabrics has allowed her to maintain a select clientele that usually sends her new clients. Her goal is to grow her business and position herself in the market and separate her production space from her family space to achieve tranquility.

Jamila is requesting a loan of 30,000 YER from AMB to buy fabric and needles in large quantities in order to get a discount, as she has orders she’ll be working on. She'll make her investment a success.

In this group: Jamila, Sameera, Boshra, Rshida
