Bayan
Bayan is 35 years old, married, and, has three children. While her husband is serving with the military, she looks after her children and makes baskets and trays using hay straws. Recently she started making mirrors frames and tissue boxes.

Bayan is requesting a loan, which she will use to purchase more raw materials such as hay and glue. This loan will help to increase her productivity so she would be able to have her own gallery for her crafts in the future.

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.
