Because Dalal is a conservative woman, she asked her husband to take her place in the picture.
Dalal was born in 1981. She is married and lives in a sector in Jordan called Marka with her husband who is running a dry cleaning business. Her husband got his experience from prior work at another dry cleaner. Then he decided to be a partner with his friend and opened their own dry cleaning store.
Now, his friend wants to sell his share of the business and Dalal’s husband wants to buy it in order to be the only owner, thus earning more profit. However, he doesn't have enough money to do so. For this reason, he has applied for a 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.
