Maha was born in 1968. She is married and the mother of three. Her husband is an outdoor salesman. Maha has been planting cactus and small plants in pottery that she makes by decorating them for five years. She started her project with a small amount of money. Then she started attending bazaars and showrooms to offer her products. Now she wants to buy a larger amount of the needed raw materials for her project in order to be more productive and to expand it to earn better profits that will help her assist her husband in covering their children's needs. However, 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.
