Abeer was born in 1981. She lives in Amman, Jordan. She has been running a gift shop for five years, making and selling teddy bears, hearts and cats. Since she works with her husband, she decided to let him appear in the picture with her.
Abeer has found this project profitable to her, so she is planning to expand it and buy more machines in the future. For now, Abeer needs money to be able to buy new raw materials, like fabric, foam, and string. These materials will enable her to do more work, so she is requesting a loan for it.
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.
