Sanaa is a 44-year-old housewife and a mother of five. Her husband sells car parts.
Sanaa started 10 years ago buying blankets and cloth from the wholesale market and selling the items as her retail business at home. People prefer to buy from her because of the product quality that she provides, and her reasonable prices.
Now Sanaa is applying for a loan to buy a larger quantity of blankets and cloth in order to open her own store in the near 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.
