Altgarh Group's story

This group is called Altrarh and it consists of four ladies: Saeeda, Sarah, Nadrh and Aisha, who have been operating different businesses. All of them are hardworking family women. They live in Aden, Yemen. They took a loan of 200,000 YER.

Saeeda is the leader of group. (She is the second woman from left side who wears glasses.) She is 40 years old and the mother of eight children who live together in Aden, Yemen.

She feels young and is enthusiastic to sell clothes and shoes to her lady customers. She collected a small capital from a women's association. She believes that business has been going so well because she is very friendly and is well known.

Due to the bad situation in Yemen, her business is currently bringing less profit. She requested a loan of 50,000 YER from AMB to buy additional goods such as ladies' clothes and also shoes. This will allow her to offer a greater variety to her customers and increase her income, helping her to continue working toward getting more profit and improving her living conditions.

In this group: Sarah, Saeedh, Nadrh, Aisha
