Growing the Local Economies

There are many different facets involved in encouraging access to finance. MEII is proud to work with our partners to support increased lending to promising ventures, through loan guarantees, technical assistance and training, and seminars, among other activities.

Recently, we were very pleased to partner with Mercy Corp and the Jordan Loan Guarantee Corporation on the Informal Livelihoods Advancement Activity (Iqlaa). Through this work, we hosted two workshops for financial service providers in Jordan, principally banks and microfinance institutions.
The workshops aimed at increasing access to finance for home-based businesses and micro and small enterprises in Jordan. This initiative by Iqlaa focused on addressing key challenges facing both growing businesses and financial service providers, including the current access-to-finance landscape, loan guarantee schemes, and best practices.

We were delighted to help lead these lively and interactive sessions, which attracted a broad swath of financial institutions. The participants were eager to learn how to support their local business ecosystems, while also increasing their revenues.

We look forward to continuing our work growing financial services for all different types of businesses, in every single one of the communities in which we live and work.
