Marwa is a 24-year-old married lady who has three kids to support with the help of her husband, Omar, who works as water leak technician.
Marwa recently started a small retail business selling mobile phones. At first she started to take orders from her customers and look for the requested mobile phone in the market to avoid the risk of losing money, but now she has brought a small collection of the most requested type of mobile phones to keep at home whenever someone comes to ask to buy a phone.
Marwa is looking to bring in more types of phones and add selling prepaid mobile phone cards to her services, and that’s why she has applied for this loan.
Because Marwa is a conservative person, she has asked her husband Omar 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.
