Intisar is a 47-year-old married woman who has six sons and one daughter.
To be able to support their big family, Intisar saw that she can help her husband who works as a taxi driver, so five years ago, Intisar started making and arranging artificial flowers at home and selling them in baskets.
Now she has applied for a loan in order to buy more material to make more artificial flowers to sell in the market to the shops and also to people they know or the neighbors.
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.
