Nisreen, 20 years old, is a housewife who has one son and one daughter. After getting married, Nisreen became very attached to her husband’s family, where they share all their plans together. Her brother-in law Mohammad, 26 years old, has a small booth in Al Mafraq where he sells hot drinks, mainly to drivers. It has been two years since he started and he is doing well.

Nisreen, as a way to support him in his business so he can support his new family, has applied for a youth loan to buy a new water heater, plus coffee and tea in larger quantity and at a lower price.

Because Nisreen is a conservative person, she asked Mohammad for whom the loan was taken, 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.
