Sameera was born in 1964. She lives with her family, which consists of her parents, three sisters and five brothers at a sector in Jordan called Southern Ghour. One of her brothers is in the military.
Sameera has been selling foodstuffs for six months; she started her project with a small amount of money. Then she started to expand it slowly. She is planning to rent a store to open a mini-market in the future.
Now she needs to buy new merchandise of biscuits, chips, and candy with the hope of raising her sales. But she doesn't have enough money to buy them, so she applied for this loan.
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.
