Dina was born in 1967. She is married and a mother of six children. Because Dina is a conservative woman, she asked her husband to appear in the borrower photo.
Dina's husband works as a driver and his income is not enough to support the family. Therefore, Dina decided to support her husband and contribute to the household by sewing bed sheets and pillows. She has been in this business for the past three years and has been able to earn a profit.
Currently, Dina is out of fabric and does not have the funds to purchase more. Therefore, she is requesting a loan to buy a variety of fabric, which will allow her to fulfill her customer's requests.
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.
