Al-Asala Group's story

Al-Asala is a group of three women living in Sana`a, Yemen. They were granted a loan of 210,000 YER (Yemen rials) by AMB. They aim to improve their businesses by using this loan.

Habiba is a 44-year-old married woman and has children; the oldest one is 25 and the youngest is 12 years old. She started a small business of selling food and soft drinks many years ago. She finds it difficult to accumulate a large amount of money to buy goods because most of the profit she makes goes to her family and children's expenses like school fees and clothes and food. Therefore, she decided to apply for a loan of 70,000 YER to expand her business and include different and new kinds of foods and soft drinks.

She looks forward to opening a small grocery store in the near future instead of selling in the street because that would attract more customers, which in turn, would result in improving her income and helping the family go over the poverty line.

In this group: Habiba, Aziza, Warda
