Rafida was born in 1991 and is a married lady. She lives in a sector in Jordan called Southern Ghour. Rafida’s husband works at a hotel and she has a small home workshop at her house for tailoring. Rafida has been working for seven years using an old sewing machine. Now that she has more orders for sewing and tailoring clothes, she has found that she needs to upgrade her machine and buy more machines to speed up her work.

Rafida has therefore applied for a youth loan to buy more sewing machines.

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.
