Siham is 41 years old. She has been married for 10 years now and has four kids. She started sewing and tailoring clothes and curtains at home two years ago to support her husband and the family's financiA. situation. During these two years, Siham has managed to gain a good number of customers. Now, Siham has applied for a loan to buy another tailoring machine to help increase her productivity and enable her to serve her customers on time.

Since Siham is a conservative person, her husband agreed to be in the photo instead of her.

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.
