Motaz is a 56-year-old married man who lives with his family in Madaba.
Motaz started a small business three years ago by opening a fruits and vegetables shop, and because he cares about the freshness of the goods he sells, people come and buy from his shop based on their trust in him and his goods.
Now Motaz has applied for a loan to add more fruits and vegetables so he can expand the shop later on.
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.
