Ahmad, 25 years old and a single guy, lives with his four brothers, two sister and his parents.
Being part of a big family, Ahmad felt that he need to do something to support himself and help his family too, so he opened a mini book and stationery shop. Starting from scratch and reaching what he has now, has given Ahmad the courage to continue and want more.
He has applied for this youth loan in order to bring in more products and add a new section for selling and wrapping gifts.
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.
