Wafaa is a 42-year-old housewife and a mother to six children. Her husband Wajeeh works as a truck driver who collects scrap and junk.

To be able to support their big family Wafaa decided to help her husband by doing what she is good at, which is making different types of pickles such as olive pickles and eggplant pickles.

After making those pickles and packing them in special containers, she sells them to the nearby food markets, besides taking orders from her friends and neighbors.

Now Wafaa has applied for a loan to make more pickles so she can distribute them to more supermarkets and food shops.

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.
