Rania is a 38-year-old conservative woman; her husband took her place in the photo, as she requested.
Her husband works in the Ministry of Education while Rania looks after their 3 boys and a girl. To support the family and fill her free time while the kids are at school, Rania established a small food and snacks market at her house, where most of the children come to buy their candy and snacks, and housewives get some basic food products.
Rania has applied for this loan to buy some missing food products that were requested by some of her customers.
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.
