Ola is 36 years old and a conservative woman. She asked her husband Khaled to appear in the photo instead of her. They have one boy and one girl. Khaled has a small bookshop where he sells student and office supplies such as paper, pens, and other stationery items. He also has a small section where he sells some household products.

Now Ola and her husband want to expand the business to increase the family income, so she applied for a loan to bring in more household products and increase the quantity of goods her husband has.

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.
