Rania is a 31-year- old mother. She is married to Haitham and has three beautiful girls. Rania is also a governmental employee at the Ministry of Education. Her husband Haitham started his own business two years ago selling gas drums that are used mostly for cooking purposes. In order to help her husband, Rania has decided to apply for a loan to help him pursue his dream and open his own gas agency. Because Rania is a conservative person, she requested that her husband appear in the picture instead of her.
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.
