Fawriah Group's story

This group is called FAWRIAH. It is made up of four women – Fawziah, Flstin, Nama and Fatima – who are neighbors from Aden, Yemen. They are hardworking women. They are taking a loan of 190,000 YER.
Fawziah is the group leader (she is the second woman from the right, with the blue handbag). She is 52 years old and married. She is a very efficient woman because, she says, aside from caring for her family, she likes to work and thus help her family. She has four adult children who are all studying. She hopes that all her children will be able to conclude their studies.
Fawziah's business is selling clothes, which has been her sole source of income for over five years. She started her business selling articles of clothing in the market in her area with limited capital. She says that it is going very well, that her loan has helped her and that she is very satisfied with the support provided.
At the present time, her business doesn't make more profit due to the difficult situation in Yemen. So she has applied for a loan of 50,000 YER from Kiva partner AMB to acquire articles of clothing such as dresses, shirts, pants, skirts, etc. to sell to customers, thus giving her the opportunity to improve the income from her business. In the future, Fawziah would like to buy a house with stores in order to expand her business activity.

In this group: Fawziah, Flstin, Nama, Fatima
