Husnia is a 40-year-old lady who works with her husband in their small grocery market to support their five sons and daughters. Two of them have their own jobs and also help their parents financially as much as they can.
After her husband Abd Alghani retired from the military, he dedicated his time to staying by his wife’s side in their 1-year-old business. They were able to fill the market with the basic and most demanded products, but now they want to add another section to sell home products and for that reason Husnia has applied for this loan.
Because Husnia is a conservative person, she asked her husband Abd Alghani to appear in the photo instead of her.
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.
