Asmahan is a 44-year-old woman who is married to Adnan, who is recently retired. They have six sons and daughters, one of whom is already married.
After her husband's retirement, Asmahan bought a toy and children’s accessories shop for her and her husband to work in. It has been only two months since they started, but they are very optimistic about their shop and want to expand it to include more and more rare toys. Therefore, Asmahan has applied for this loan to decorate the shop and buy more toys.
Because Asmahan is a conservative person, she asked her husband to appear 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.
