but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy blankets, clothes and different items to sell for her home-based trading business.

Basma's story

Basma is a 55-year-old Jordanian woman and a mother of six. Her husband is a retired man who fills his time working as a bus driver. As life gets harder, and the prices become higher every year, the income that her husband gains is not enough, especially after the COVID-19 pandemic struck the whole economy.

Now Basma is not young enough to go for work, but that wasn’t a barrier for her to think of a solution by starting her own business. Her new business was also affected by the pandemic, but she is very determined to keep working until she spread her name more and more. So, she asked for 1,300 JOD to buy blankets, clothes and different items to sell in her area.
