Om Majed 3 Group's story

Amira, 29, is the leader of the group Om Majed 3, which is comprised of four women who live in Hodeidah, Yemen. She lives with her three daughters in a simple house. After her husband traveled abroad to work, Samira assumed all the responsibility for the family. The situation was wretched, but she didn't give up and strove to improve their conditions.

In 2010 Samira started her own business selling women’s clothes, perfume and incense. She started out with little money but was then fortunate to receive financial support from her mother to continue running her business. For this, Samira is very thankful.

Now Samara depends on herself financially in her business. She makes modest profits, most of which go to cover the family's expenses. She would like to further develop her business, but she has little in capital.

Samira’s group is now applying for a 110,000 YER loan through AMB. Samara herself will use 50,000 YER of it to buy more clothes, perfume, incense and other items to sell to her customers. With the anticipated expansion of her business she hopes to provide her daughters with a secure future.

In this group: Samira, Ayda, Huda, Khyria
