Alya was born in 1982. She is married and has six children.
Alya has been working in selling clothes and housewares for five years. She started her project at a small room in her house. Then she started expanding her project by building a small room near her house because she didn’t find enough space for the products inside her house.
Now she is asking for a loan to buy more clothes and housewares in order to trade them, as she found this project profitable. It will bring her good income, which will help her cover her children’s needs in the future.
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.
