Tef Al- Amal Group's story

This group is called Tef Al- Amal. It consists of four women. They all live in traditional and simple families in Sana'a, Yemen. They know one another through friendship and neighborhood connections. They applied for a loan of 210,000 YER from AMB.

Nahed is a 34-year-old married woman with four children. She is the leader of the group. Nahed lives with her family in their own house. She studied until elementary school but could not complete her studies because she got married very young. She is a very dynamic and vigorous woman. Her husband is the sole breadwinner of the family. In the past, he saved a good amount of money and purchased a piece of land. Nahed supported him with a lot of her own money. Many years ago, Nahed and her husband built their own house on the land that they bought. Now the family lives in that house but it is not completed or renovated. As a result, Nahed is requesting a loan of 70,000 YER from AMB. She will use the loan to purchase construction materials such as cement and bricks in order to complete and renovate the house.

Nahed hopes to renovate her house and build the second floor. She wants to open a savings account in AMB in order to provide her children with a secure future.

In this group: Sabria, Amat, Mona, Nahed
