Sahar is 37 years old and a widow, who has been working as school teacher for people with special needs and learning difficulties for almost a year now.
Before finding this job, Sahar always dreamt of helping people with special needs in their life, and since it is expensive to send those kids to a special needs school, she started giving private lessons at her house, specially to people who have learning difficulties.
Now Sahar has both jobs, one at the school and the other at her house after work. Since she has experience on how to approach her students, she added giving English lessons as one of her services.
Now Sahar has applied for this loan to enhance the teaching area at her house so she can provide the best service for her customers.
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.
