Samar was born in 1962. She is married and lives in a sector in Jordan called Zarqa with her husband, who is a security man, and five sons and daughters. Samar has been trying her best to support her husband financially by running her mini-market which she started running one year ago. She started her project at home selling a small quantity of food products and found it profitable. Then, she opened her own mini-market. Now she needs to purchase a refrigerator where she can keep her frozen products. 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.
