Fatheya was born in 1964. She is married and has five children. Her husband works as a bus driver, which is a weak source of income that is not letting him be able to cover his children's needs by himself.
Fatheya started working in sewing 10 years ago to help her husband to earn better income. She started her project with one sewing machine. Then she had the chance to open her own sewing workshop. Now she needs a loan to buy more sewing machines for her new workshop to be able to run her business perfectly.
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.
