Wesal was born in 1972. She is married and a mother of five, living in a rented house in a sector in Jordan called Karak. Her husband is retired. Wesal has been trying her best to support her family and to help her husband in covering their children's needs by running her project selling home products for 13 years. She needs to expand it more now by buying a larger quantity of home products and adding variety and improving her store, 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.
