Haidar Group's story

Haidar group consists of four women from Al-Hodeidah, Yemen. They applied for a loan of 90,000 YER to purchase ice cream for resale. Nadhra, a 38-year-old married woman from Al-Hodeidah, is the leader of the group. She is the mother of five children and the breadwinner of the family. Four years ago, she started up her business in selling ice cream to assist her husband in covering household expenses. She had no choice but to work and provide her family with food and clothing. She managed to succeed in the first business of her entire life. Al-Hodeidah Governorate is one of the warmest cities in Yemen and therefore most of the residents buy ice cream daily. Nadhra wants to start selling ice cream in new quarters and places in her city, and this is why she applied for a loan of 30,000 YER. She looks forward to improving her family's living conditions and buying a new fridge.

In this group: Amany, Maria, Nadhra, Amna
