A loan of $700 helped a member to buy clothes for resale.

Wafa'a Group's story

Wafa'a group consists of four women from Aden, Yemen. They applied for a 145,000 YER loan from AMB to purchase clothes for resale.

Wafa'a is a 35-year-old married woman who has three children. She is illiterate and lives with her husband and children. Her husband works very hard and does his best to cover all the family's needs.

She wants to help her husband and provide better living conditions for her family. She became a door-to-door clothes seller. At first, she was selling clothes for others and got money for that. After she had enough experience, she wanted to start her own business.

She would like to purchase and resell women's clothes, especially "dera'a"' and "jalabiate" -- traditional, light dresses worn mostly in warm areas in Yemen. Wafa'a has requested a loan of 40,000 YER. She hopes to earn large profits in order to improve the standard of living for her family and start selling electronics and cell phones.

In this group: Wafa'a, Hamidah, Mariam, Fathia
