Mona is a 36-year-old married woman. She has two sons and two daughters.
Mona started a small home-based business to help in supporting the family and have another income beside her husband's business. She started collecting and buying used clothes for sale.
Mona hopes that she and her husband can move from selling on the roadsides to having a shop for selling used clothes, so as a start she has applied for a loan to buy more clothes and later open their own store.
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.
