Ayda was born in 1977. She is married and has three sons and two daughters. She lives in Zarqa, Jordan in a rented house. Aydas' husband is a bus driver, so their source of income does not cover their children's needs. For this reason, she has been working at sewing clothes for four years. She started her work at home by selling the sewn clothes that she makes to her neighbors and she is planning to expand her project in the future and to start selling clothes to people outside her area.
Ayda is now seeking a loan to buy more fabrics and wool to be able to sew more clothes and raise her sales so that she will earn better income.
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.
