Doa’a is a married lady living with her husband in Zarqa. She is known for being a committed and creative woman. She has been running her own small business breeding and selling different types of birds to people all over her area.
Finding that this is such a successful business and that demand is increasing, Doa’a wishes to get a loan to increase the number of birds she has so she can buy her own shop to move her business to. Then she can run the shop along with her husband and expand their business and profits.
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.
