Sharifa was born in 1976. She is married and the mother of five, living in an area in Jordan called Dairalla. Her husband is a retired man. Sharifa has been raising goats and cows and selling their products for one year in order to support her husband in improving their living conditions. She started her project raising only goats. Then she noticed that cows are more productive. Now she is requesting a loan to buy another cow in order to expand her project and raise her productivity, 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.
