Khaleda has a sewing machine at home that she uses to tailor different models of curtains. Her clients bring her the fabric and tell her what design it is that they wish her to make.
She is applying for a 1000 JOD loan from National Microfinance Bank to buy supplies for her curtain business. She hopes to see it grow.
About National Microfinance BankJordan 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.
