Sarah, 45 years old and a married woman, has a family of six members. Her husband owns a pick-up truck and works in a transporting and distribution business.
Sarah decided to make use of a small area at her house to sell food products. As it appears in the photo, she has built special shelves to put the products on, so they could be organized and easy to reach.
Now Sarah has applied for this loan to bring in more products that are not related to food such as tissues and kitchen 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.
