Tareq is a 26-year-old guy who recently got married. He works in a governmental entity.

Tareq used to go to cafés with his friends almost on a daily basis where they would enjoy having coffee and smoking a 'hooka' (waterpipe). From there he decided to open his own café to make money rather than spending a lot on his evenings. Having two jobs has allowed Tareq to get married at a young age and he is looking forward to starting his own family.

For that reason, he wants to enhance his café and add a new type of drinks to his menu. That is why he has applied for a youth loan. In the future he also wants to be able to serve food plates beside drinks and 'hooka'.

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.
