Geram Group's story

Geram group consists of five women from Al-Hodeida, Yemen. They have asked for a loan in the total amount of 100,000 YER from AMB to purchase women's clothing, perfumes, incense, and vegetables.

Zahra, 25 years old, is a married woman with four children. She is illiterate and lives with her husband and their children in a small house. Her husband works very hard to provide his family with everything they need, but what he earns is really not enough (rather, it is just enough for their house's rent). Therefore, one year ago, Zahra decided to work and to help her hardworking husband. Specifically, she is a door-to-door clothes and cosmetics' seller.

To date, she has earned good profits, and she now wants to expand her business and to start selling vegetables in the street, which would enable her to earn more money. As a result, she applied for a loan in the amount of 20,000 YER for her business. Zahra is very ambitious and loves her family very much. Going forward, she wants to educate her children and to improve their living standards.
