The people of Ajloun depend largely on agricultural projects as their main source of income. Jordan is the second most water-scarce country in the world with water levels falling as a result of the climate impact of increased temperatures, lower rainfall and a rising population.

The water scarcity has had a detrimental impact on the agricultural sector with most farmers struggling to grow produce and when they do, are required to sell it for an exponential price, impacting the food security of the local communities.

The impact of climate change and covid have meant that many families are looking to expand their businesses, either by purchase of livestock or exploring other business ventures. This is to create another revenue stream to support their families. In a world where climate change is compounding the effects of poverty, we can make a difference by supporting sustainable farming practices and providing loans for women to diversify and create another income stream.

Why Revolving Microloans?

Microloans provide the financial support needed to help grow a business.

This process can encourage increased income and financial literacy.

The recipient can reapply once they have fulfilled the conditions of their previous loan. This allows for further investment in their business to promote growth and revenue generation.
