Salam is a 41-year-old housewife. She has two sons and two daughters. Her second son, Samer, is 23 years old and is in his fourth year studying for a banking and finance major at university. Because of the university’s high fees, Samer has a part-time job to help his family, who are paying for his college fees. Unfortunately, it is not enough, so his mother Salam has applied for a loan to pay for a semester so Samer can continue and eventually graduate to work in the banking field.
Because Salam is a conservative person, her son Samer has agreed 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.
