Amal
Amal is 55 years old and a hard-working mother of five. She works as a teacher, and because of that she insists on getting her sons and daughters a good education and turning them into productive members of society.

Her youngest son Abdallah is now a college student who wants to get his Bachelor degree in computer information system and then continue to get a Master's degree, too.

To help her son finish his education at the first level, Amal has applied for a loan to pay for his semester fees. Because Amal is a conservative person, she asked her son Abdallah to appear in the photo instead of her.

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.
