Hanan is a 53-year-old mother who wants to support her son Ahmad in his mini-market. He has been in business for more than a year now.
At first she used to help him by making goods orders to guide her son in the business field. Now that he is capable of doing that, she has applied for a loan to expand the mini-market space and add more variety in the goods they sell.
Because Hanan is a conservative person, her son Ahmad has agreed to appear 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.
