Maha is a 43-year-old wife and a mother of 6 sons and daughters. To be able to help her husband who works for one of the governmental entities, that is to help support the family, she started a small home-based retail business selling cleaning material and detergents.
It has been three years now since she started; basically what she does is buy large quantities of detergents and refill them into smaller usable containers.
Now Maha is applying for this loan to buy other types of detergents with different scents.
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.
