Safaa is now a 27-year-old single lady who lives with her parents. She is the youngest member of her four brothers and sisters.
Safaa opened a small food store where she mostly sells snacks for the kids in the neighborhood, so she can help her family financially. It has been three years now since she started, and her brother Mohammad sometimes helps her by taking shifts so she can rest.
Now Safaa has applied for a loan to offer more food products like sugar, rice, etc to reach more customers. Because Safaa is a conservative person, she asked her brother Mohammad to appear in the picture 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.
