Because Raeda is a conservative person, she asked one of her sons, Muthanna, to take her place in the picture.

Raeda is a 52-year-old mother; she is a school principal. Raeda has eight sons and daughters, and two of them are now college students. Muthanna, who appears in the photo, is a 20-year-old single guy studying to become a lawyer; the other is Mahmoud, a 22-year-old single guy studying educational studies and behavior.

Raeda knows the importance of education and that’s why she wants to make sure that all of her children will get their university degrees so they can have a decent position in society. For that reason, Raeda has applied for this loan to pay for both of her sons’ semester fees.

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.
