Thabyan Group's story

This group is called Thabyan and is composed of four women. They applied for a loan of 80,000 YER from AMB.

The president of the group is Salwa. She is 23 years old, a widow, and has two children. She works selling perfumes and incense door to door. She lives with her children in Hodeidah, Yemen. After her husband died, she assumed all the responsibility for her children. In order to provide her children with the necessary needs, she began her own business. She makes modest profits; unfortunately, all of her profits go to the children's expenses. On the other hand, she wants to enlarge her business. Therefore, she applied for a loan of 20,000 YER from AMB. She will use the loan to buy more incense and perfumes and resell them. In this way, she will increase her working capital and improve her business. Her reason for applying for this loan is a lack of capital. Salwa faces many challenges in her business, including increasing her client base, and she will use the profits to improve the quality of life for her children.

Salwa looks forward to providing her children with a lot of money and sending her youngest child to a private school.

In this group: Salwa, Afya, Hyat, Fayza
