Haijar was born in 1977. She is married and a mother of five. She lives in a part of Jordan called Dair Alla. Her husband is a government employee and a driver. Haijar has been raising and selling livestock since two years ago. She started with a small number of livestock. Then she raised their number, as she found her project profitable. With the profits she can improve her family’s living conditions, in addition to covering her children's needs. Now, she needs to raise the number of her livestock further. But she doesn't have enough money to do so. 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.
