Khawla was born in 1969. She is married and has six children. Her husband is a retired man who works in a bakery. Khawla has been working in selling housewares and making baskets since three years ago. She started her project by trying to make a basket and put it for sale. Then she realized that starting such a project will be profitable to her. So she started selling housewares after that in order to raise her income and to support her husband in covering their children's needs. Now she needs new merchandise and materials to make more baskets, but she doesn't have money to buy them. For this reason, she applied for this loan.
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.
