Muhannad is a 28-year-old man who recently married Asmaa, a 25-year-old lady.
Having experience in working as a barber led Muhannad to open his own barber shop three years ago. Now Muhannad has a very good business reputation in his neighborhood and that’s why he is looking now to work on expanding his barber shop and include more seats. In the future he wants to open a branch in another area.
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.
