Kefa is a 37-year-old mom; she and her husband Ayed have four children. Kefa wanted to find a way to help her husband support the family, since she decided to stay at home and be a housewife.
She found a good opportunity five years ago to open a vegetables and fruits store and let her husband work there, and that's what she did. The store is known for its fresh fruits and vegetables and is located in a good area where it can serve a lot of people.
Now Kefa has applied for a loan to expand the store, and open another store in another area.
Ayed, her husband, appears in the picture since Kefa is a conservative person.
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.
