Nahla was born in 1976. She is married, and a mother of 13 living in a sector in Jordan called Madaba. Her husband is a carpenter.
Nahla has been running her home mini-market for 1 1/2 years. She started her project selling a small amount of food products; she found her project profitable after that, so she decided to add accessories and home products to her sales in the future to expand her sales.
Now she is seeking to buy a larger quantity of food products, and to merchandise her mini-market to raise her profit and to be a good financial support for her family. 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.
