Awtar Group's story

This group is called “AWTAR”. It is made up of five members: Awtar, Safa, Abeer, Nagla and Mriam, who work together in different areas. Among these are selling ladies' clothes. This is a group of women with initiative, values and good proposals on how to conduct business nowadays. They requested a loan of 250,000 YER from AMB.

Awtar is 28 years old, a married woman with two children. She is the leader of this group. (In the photo she is on the left, with pink fabric on her shoulder.) She lives in Aden, Yemen. She is a merchant; specifically she sells new clothes for adults and children, according to the season.

Awtar has been doing this for three years. She sells her products from her house. She buys her merchandise from distributors and stores where the prices are cheaper. She began this activity as a result of the lack of a clothes market in her neighborhood.

She is very grateful to her neighbors who supported her over all these years. With the income from her business she was able to upgrade her home and enjoy more comfort. At the present time, her business doesn't get her as much profit due to the bad situation in Yemen.

So she applied for a youth loan of 50,000 YER from AMB to acquire articles of clothing such as dresses, shirts, pants, skirts, shoes, etc. She will sell them to her customers, thus giving her the opportunity to improve her income from her business. One of her personal dreams is to send her children to private high schools.

In this group: Safa, Abeer, Nagla, Awtar, Mriam
