Raghda A., a 39-year-old married woman, wanted to help her husband in supporting the family, so they decided to open a Mini-Market. “Hamada Mini-Market” is the name of their store. It has been serving a wide area for two years now. Customers have came up to Raghda’s husband (since he is the one working at the store) and asked him to add more variety to their products. In order to satisfy their customers, Raghda applied for this loan to buy more products for their store and to improve the decoration of the shop.
Raghda is a conservative person who didn't want her photo published on the internet. So, her husband appears in the photo.
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.
