Al- Rysala Group's story

This group is called Al- Rysala and consists of four women living in Hodeidah, Yemen. They applied for a loan of 95,000 YER from AMB.

Fatima, 39 years old, has three sons. She is a hardworking married woman who is very dedicated to what she sets out to do. In the beginning her husband was an emigrant in Saudi Arabia. Because of the crisis of the emigration between Yemen and the Saudi Kingdom, most of the Yemeni emigrants came back home. Fatima's husband was one of them. Unfortunately, he didn't save a lot of money. During that time, he stayed an unemployed man for a long time. As a result, Fatima decided to assist him with the expenses of the family. Three years ago, she started her business as a door to door saleswoman, selling women clothes, accessories, and perfumes to the local residents. Although business is good, she needs to buy more items in order to strengthen her business. Therefore, she applied for a loan from AMB in order to buy perfumes, accessories, and women clothes and resell them to her customers.

Fatima looks forward to improving her family with a lot of money.
