Nusra is a 43-year-old married woman, and a mother to three sons and one daughter.
Four years ago she started a small retail business selling medicA. covers and sheets, then she bought a sewing machine and decided to start making those sheets and sell them by herself. It has been two years since she started sewing the medicA. sheets, and she finds it better to do it herself.
Now Nusra want to buy more materiA. and tools needed to make more sheets, and in the future she wants to have her own sewing and tailoring workshop with a good number of employees to make those types of sheets and covers.
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.
