Ghada, a 41-year-old, conservative woman has asked her husband to take her place in the photo.
To be able to support their three kids, Ghada decided to help her husband by starting a small sales business at home. She started with selling cosmetic products and wants to add clothing sales too. For that reason, she applied for this loan to build a clothing collection and buy more cosmetics that will help her increase her profits and have greater variety in what she sells.
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.
