Dalal is a 60-year-old housewife married to Omar. They have four married children. She worked in the retail business for 15 years and then started a small home business three years ago, selling household supplies such as pans, cups, glasses, trays, etc. During these three years, she was able to open her own store to sell household supplies and add more items and brands to the products she sells. Then she taught her son the business so he can continue running their successful business. She gave the store to her son so he can have an income source to support his family, and she has applied for a loan to buy new products and items to get more variety in the store.
Dalal is a conservative person so she recommended that her son appear 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.
