Kefah
Kefah is a 38-year-old conservative woman (her husband took her place in the photo). The two have a medium-sized food market that she works at during the day while her husband is working on his cab. In the afternoons she goes to look after their daughter and three sons and he stays at the shop. Now Kefah has applied for a loan to enhance their shop by allowing them to obtain new snack stands and add more food products.

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.
