Areej is a 22-year-old lady who lives in a rented house. At first she was trying to think of a way to help in paying the rent so, a year ago, she started a small home business using her artistic skills and creative ideas.

Areej was known for her skill at working with straw, so she started making straw baskets and beautiful frames and selling them. She also does flower organizing for speciA. occasions.

Doing that for a year made her want more success, so now she is applying for a loan to help her expand her business and have her own shop in the future.

About National Microfinance Bank

Jordan is a small country located in the heart of the Middle East’s Levant region. Regional instability has caused Jordan to be excluded from global investments for decades. Additionally, a lack of natural resources—including water and energy—places tremendous strain on the Jordanian economy, over 80% of which consists of small businesses, largely in the service industry. Despite their importance in the economy, many of these businesses are excluded from the banking sector because of their size. Microfinance institutions like National Microfinance Bank offer them an opportunity to enhance and expand their businesses. NMB also offers its services to other underprivileged peoples in Jordan, providing them with loans to pursue educational goals and improve their homes and livelihoods.
