Suha a 29-year-old housewife, who is a mother to a son and daughter. Suha is married to Nael who works full time in one of the Jordanian governmental entities.
At home after Nael finishes his work, Suha and her husband help each other to create beautiful mosaic paintings and crafts. Nael started this business and taught his wife Suha, it has been nine years since they started working in this field.
Suha has applied for this loan to buy new tools that are needed to make this art, as the ones they have are old and need to be renewed.
Because Suha is a conservative person, Nael has agreed to appear in the photo instead.
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.
