Amer was born in 1972. He lives with his wife at a sector in Jordan called Southern Ghour.
Amer has been selling hot drinks for a year and a half. He started his project by moving around the neighborhoods and selling his products. Now he owns a kiosk where he can sell his drinks.
He wants to expand his project by adding snacks, herbs, coffee, chairs and tables so that his customers can sit and enjoy their drinks. But he doesn't have enough money to do so. For this reason, he 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.
