Yusra was born in 1981. She is married and has three children. Her husband is an employee of the government and also works as a farmer; this doesn't allow him to earn enough money to cover his children's needs.
Yusra has been working trading blankets for four months. She found it a profitable project so she is planning to expand it in the future. To start expanding it she is requesting a loan to buy more blankets and trade them which will let her earn more income.
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.
