Abduljalil's story

Abduljalil is a 49-year-old, married man. He and his wife have seven children, most of whom are in school. He explains that, during his childhood, he could not go to school because he had nobody to support him.

To earn a living, he is a food distributor who sells small products. He purchases food items, which he distributes in Taiz by using a tricycle to carry the goods. He came up with this business idea when he was working in a big store with a merchant, who supported him as he started the business with simple, affordable products. The business is the sole source of income supporting him and his large family.

He is seeking a loan in the amount of 100,000 YER from AMB in order to purchase more goods, such as like spices and other food items, to meet his clients' demands. With the help of the loan proceeds, he feels that he will be able to generate more profits and to thereby improve his family's living conditions.
