Sumaya is almost 41 years old now. She is married and is living with four sons and daughters and her husband. Because Sumaya is a conservative person, she asked her husband Mohammad to appear in the photo. Mohammad is a construction worker in the daytime. After that, he helps his wife in her small business at home.

Sumaya started a small business at home to get another source of income for the family. Her business is basically selling some types of basic food products such as rice, sugar, and candy for kids. She also sells and refills detergents at home for the neighbors.

She is now applying for a loan to buy more food and cleaning products so she can one day move her business from the house to a small shop and serve more customers.

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.
