A loan of $1,075 helped a member to buy women's clothes for her business.


Al-Wafa Group's story

Al-Wafa Group consists of four women from Aden, Yemen. They are applying for a 230,000 YER loan through Al-Amal to buy women's clothes to sell. The loan will be split among them.

Klthom, fifty, is a member of this group. She knows how to read and write. Her husband works very hard and does his best to provide his family with food and clothing, but unfortunately the money he makes is really not enough to support the family adequately.

Ten years ago, Klthom decided to help her husband with the family’s finances. In the beginning she started going door to door selling products that only earned her a small income. Then she started selling clothes.

Now that Klthom has enough experience selling clothes, she intends to have her own independent business selling them. For this reason she will receive a 70,000 YER portion of the loan. She hopes that she will make a profit selling a lot of clothes to new clients in different quarters and places in her city.

In this group: Wahba, Samia, Kalthom, Nahd
