Fayza is a 19-year-old lady, who is married to Mohammad, 24 years old, and has a baby boy.
Her husband Mohammad has six years' tailoring experience, and he also has a small workshop for sewing and tailoring. Fayza wanted to help her husband so they can provide their son with a comfortable life specially as they are both still young, so she learned the business from her husband and started working with him.
Fayza has found out that working with her husband every day has brought them closer to each other, so she decided to continue what she is doing and applied for this loan to register their workshop officially.
Both Fayza and her husband appear together in the picture.
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.
