Malekah Group's story

Malekah is a group of five women from Taiz, Yemen. They applied for a 150,000 Yemeni rial (YER) loan to renovate houses. Ashwaq, 23 years old, is a married woman and the mother of one child. She lives with her family in a small, old house in Taiz city. Her house is very old and needs a renovation. Her husband managed to accumulate a decent amount of money, but it is not enough. Ashwaq decided to help him and apply for a loan in the amount of 50,000 YER. She looks forward to having a better and bigger house.
