Omar is a 24-year-old single man. He is the only brother to six sisters who are all living with their mother. Their father passed away.

To be able to register himself at the university, Omar had to look for a job that could support him and pay for his university fees. He found a job in a café making and serving coffee in the afternoon. During the day, Omar is attending the university to study economics in hopes that after graduation he can find a suitable professional job to support his sisters and mom.

Now, Omar has applied for this loan so he can pay for his semester fees to get a Bachelor's degree in economics.

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.
