Khadija's story

Khadija is 39 years old, a married woman who lives comfortably with three of her children in Sana`a, Yemen. She is a hard-working woman with strong ambitions to move forward in life and to be happy. She has been operating a beauty salon that provides more generalized services related to skin health, facial aesthetics, foot care, even meditation and other services. She acquires all needed items on regular trips to the capital. She serves her customers with a very friendly and amenable manner which means they are loyal to her and recommend her to others, increasing her customer base. She started her business with a small amount of capital provided by her father until she was able to be a professional hairdresser. Now she has been working alone. She describes her business as profitable, as it provides her with good earnings, and she is able to sell all her products. Due to her desire to generate her own income, Khadija requested a loan of 150,000 YER from AMB to invest in buying a variety of cosmetic creams, shampoo and make-up, artificial hair and combs. In the future, she dreams that her business will continue to provide income in order to help her family with the household income, and in that way, provide a better quality of life. She also dreams of having a big store where she could hire many girls who are in need of work over there.
