Because Sameera is a conservative woman, she asked her husband to take her place in the picture. Sameera was born in 1962. She is married and has 6 children. All of them are living in a sector in Jordan called Southern Ghour.
Sameera's husband is a retired man who distributes water with his water tanker, which is their only source of income. He is currently facing a problem with running his business because the tires of his water tanker need to be repaired but, as he is facing a financial crisis, he doesn't have enough money to buy new tires. For this reason, Sameera 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.
