Rahaf Al- Hodeidah Group's story

Rahaf Al- Hodeidah is a group that consists of four women living in Hodeidah, Yemen. They applied for a loan of 80,000 YER from AMB.

Samira is a 42-year-old married woman with four children and lives with them in a simple house in a poor area. Her oldest child is 13 years old and the youngest one is 8 years old. Samira is the leader of the group. She is an uneducated woman, but she works very hard. Samira decided to help her husband in covering the expenses of the family. Three years ago, Samira started her door-to-door business selling women's and children's clothes to the local residents in her area. From this business, she earns good profits, but she spends most of the interest on the expenses of the family. On the other side, she wants to enlarge her business, but she doesn't have enough money to do that. For this reason, she is requesting a loan of 20,000 YER from AMB in order to purchase more women's and children's clothes and resell them to her customers.

In the future, Samira plans to expand her business through selling all kinds of clothes, makeup, cosmetics, accessories, and other items that will help her improve the living standards of her family.

In this group: Wahba, Samira, Fatima, Arafa
