Sanaa is a 28-year-old college student who decided to help her mother, who is supporting Sanaa and her younger brother since their father passed away. Her mom, Shieha, has been running a small snack and food products store in the neighborhood to support her family, especially their education, for more than 5 years.
Now that Sanaa is a college student, she decided to give a hand to her mother. She's applied for a loan so she can buy more products for expansion of the store into a wholesale store. Part of the loan will be used for school tuition so she will be able to continue her studies.
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.
