Seeta is a 39-year-old single lady, the oldest among her sisters and one brother. She lives with her parents.
Seeta started a small tailoring business seven years ago by opening a small workshop with one sewing machine, Seeta is specialized in making curtains. Now she wants to add another service, making bedsheets and covers, so she applied for a loan to buy the material and tools that she needs to start her new service.
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.
