Aysha is a 46-year-old married woman. Her husband has two jobs. Both of them are still caring for two of their children as the rest are married and independent.
As help from Aysha, she started using the sewing machine that she has to do some small tailoring business for the neighbors, but now she wants to turn it into a more official business. For that, she has applied for this loan to buy a new sewing machine and more fabric and threads to make more clothes.
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.
