Samar is 42 years old and a hard-working woman; she has three sons and one daughter.
Samar started almost five years ago with a small humble shop, a dry cleaning business in Al Zarqa, where she has special machines and equipment for cleaning clothes and ironing them. And since then she has expanded her services to include dyeing clothes and fabric in the same shop.
Living through these successful five years has given her the courage to expand the work area and try to recruit employees to help her serve her customers as fast as she can. That’s why she 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.
