A loan of $300 helped a member to buy clothing, perfumes, and incense.


Al-Fares Group's story

Fares-Al-Hodeidah is a four women group from Al-Hodeida, Yemen. They applied for a loan of 60,000 YER from AMB to purchase women's clothing, perfumes, and incense.

The group’s leader, Heleima, is a 31-year-old married woman with three children. She completed elementary school but did not continue because she got married at a young age. Her husband's monthly income is not enough to cover all living expenses, especially food and rent. Therefore, she wants to start a small business to help her husband. She wants to sell women's clothing, perfumes, and incense door-to-door. She asked for a loan in the amount of 15,000 YER. Heleima hopes that this business will make a profit and improve her family’s living standards.

In this group: Fafemah, Aishah, Fafemah, Heleima
