Amal is a 39-year-old woman who works along with her husband, Emad, in a tailoring shop that she owns. They have two daughters and one son.
Both Amal and her husband have been working in the shop for the last 7 years, and are dependent on it as their income source.
Now Amal has applied for a loan to fix the interior decoration and arrangement to be more flexible for them to work in; she also wants to buy more fabric and material.
Since Amal is a conservative person, her husband Emad has agreed to appear 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.
