Basema is a housewife who was born in 1963. She is married and has three sons. Her husband works fixing cars which is a weak source of income, and her sons work at a cafe. They all live in a rented house. One of Basema's sons is working at the cafe and studying at the same time for a Diploma in Airports and Travel and Tourism Office Management (2nd year). He is planning to start studying a Masters of Audio Engineering after he gets his Bachelor degree. As Basema is currently facing financial problems, she is asking for a loan to pay for her son's study fees. Because Basema is a conservative woman, she asked her son to take her place in the picture.

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.
