Zohour, a 38 year old conservative woman, has asked her husband to take her place in the photo. She is a mother of two boys and one girl. Her husband is a steel and machinery junk seller. Zohour loves flowers (that is also the meaning of her name) and the idea of arranging bouquets and decorating vases. She works with plastic or any kind of material when she doesn’t have fresh flowers, and tries to arrange her products in a nice way to be used as decorations in a house. She has applied for this loan to bring in more raw material to enlarge her business and start decorating for weddings and special occasions.
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.
