Jamila was born in 1969. She is married and lives in a sector of Jordan called Dairalla with her husband and her five children. Her husband works at a governmental entity, which is a weak source of income.
Jamila started selling home products two years ago to support her husband in covering their children's needs and to provide them with the best education. Now she needs to buy a larger quantity of home products in order to increase her sales, but she doesn't have enough money to do so. For this reason, she has 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.
