Areen is a 29-year-old mother of three daughters and one son. She is married to Ayman who works as a driver.

Areen has been making fake flowers and plants for the last four years and sells them as decorations whether to companies or private houses. She also makes baskets and decorates trays for special events.

Now she has applied for a loan to buy more materials that are needed to make the items she sells so she can make more profit and open a special store to sell different types of decoration pieces.

Because Areen is a conservative person, she asked her husband Ayman to be in the photo instead.

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.
