Myassar is a 30-year-old mother of 3 children, married to Jamal, an employee at the Ministry of Education. Myassar is also a hard-working mother who has a full-time job as a nurse in a clinic in their area.
Myassar has just started a small business by opening a small food store at home that she can work at after getting off her full-time job. Jamal also helps her in the store selling different kinds of spices, rice, canned vegetables, etc.
Since Myassar is just starting her business she applied for this loan to buy more food products so she will be able to serve most of the people in the area.
Myassar is from a conservative family, so she asked her husband Jamal to be in the picture.
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.
