Shaker Group's story

The Shaker group is made up of three women and a man from Taiz, Yemen. They applied for a loan of 150,000 YER from AMB to purchase clothing and cosmetics for resale. Khawzran is a 30-year-old married woman with four children and the leader of the group. Her family suffers from an inability to pay for essential living expenses because their only income source is Khawzran's husband monthly salary, which is very low. Khawzran intends to help her husband, so she asked for a loan of 40,000 YER to pay for purchasing women's and kids' clothing, perfumes, and incense. She hopes that, with the profit she makes, she will be able to improve her family living standards and open a savings account with AMB.

In this group: Khameis, Khawzran, Nada, Shadad
