Haifa was born in 1964. She lives in a rented house at a sector in Jordan called Salt, with her husband and their daughter. Her husband is a painter, and she has a retired brother.
Haifa has been selling clothes for three years now. She started her project with a small quantity of clothes. She considered her work a good source of income to support her husband in covering their child's needs.
Now she is planning to expand her project by buying a larger quantity of clothes and to add variety to them to raise her profit. But she doesn't have enough money to do so. For this reason, she has 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.
