Sahar is a 47-year-old married lady living with her husband and their five children. She started her business 25 years ago at her home where she makes accessories and embroiders oriental dresses by hand to help her husband with the expenses of their household.
Being so popular among her family members, neighbors, and friends who like what she creates, Sahar decided to take a big step four years ago by starting her own dependent shop for accessories and handmade embroidery.
She would like to get a loan to help her expand her store, buy more raw materials, and display a new variety of products as she is now a productive member of the family and helps greatly with the household and the children’s expenses.
Because Sahar is a conservative person, she has asked her son Bara to appear in the photo.
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.
