Thana’, 57 years old and widowed, lives in a rented house. Thana’ has two married sons who sometimes help her.

Four years ago, Thana’ started a small business using her connections selling cosmetics, make-up and accessories to be able to pay the rent and live a decent life. She hopes that she can separate her business from her house and open an accessories and make-up store in the market, so she has applied for a loan to increase the quantity she has of products.

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.
