Rasmiah and her husband Rashad have started a small business in a storage room in their house mixing detergents and then selling them.
Rashad also works as a driving teacher so they can support their family that includes five children. Now they want to buy more raw materials that are used in manufacturing these cleaning products, so Rasmiah has decided to apply for a loan under her name to be able to do that.
Because Rasmiah is a conservative person, her husband Rashad has agreed to be in the photo.
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.
