Sabha, 50 years old, is a housewife who had four sons to raise.
Sabha has been doing her retail business for the last four years now, selling women's clothes at home. She started by selling to the people she knows like relatives, friends and neighbors. Then the word about the clothes she sells reached more people from other neighborhoods who came asking to buy from her.
Sabha has applied for a loan to open a small shop for selling the clothes she has, where she can show them in an attractive way, and to have a place that everyone can reach.
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.
