Aysha was born in 1967. She is married and has 5 children. Her husband is a retired man who works as a driver. His current work is a weak source of income which is not enough to cover his children's needs. Aysha has been working in selling detergents for one year. She started her project selling small quantities, and she found it profitable and a good support for her family. Then she decided to expand the business by building a room to open her own detergent store. She needs a good income which she can get from selling larger quantities of detergents, but she doesn't have enough money to buy them. For this reason, 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.
