Sabah is 29 years old and a mother of two boys. Her husband Haroon is an employee at one of the Jordanian universities.
Sabah wanted to help her husband and her family financially, but at the same time she doesn’t want to be away from her children so she started a small home business selling stationery items, accessories and cosmetics.
Now Sabah has applied for a loan to buy a wrapping machine so she can make special sets of the items she sells on her own.
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.
