Karima Group's story

Karima group consists of five women from Hodeida, Yemen. They asked for a 170,000 YER loan from AMB. Mariam, 39 years old and married with seven children, is the leader of the group. She loves her husband and children very much and wants to do her best to see them happy. She knows that her husband's income can't cover all their needs, so she thought of starting a small business. She has a food stall. She has been selling boiled and fried potatoes for seven years. She wants to sell more food and therefore, she applied for a loan from AMB to buy a quantity of potatoes, flour and cooking oil for her business. She hopes to make more profits to be able to provide her family with everything they need to be successful and have a better future.
