About the JVL Project

The Jordan Valley Links (JVL) project promoted economic empowerment for women and youth by fostering more inclusive market systems in the Jordan Valley region and improving access to finance, while building a more entrepreneurial culture within communities and households.

The JVL project collaborated with women and youth microentrepreneurs, small and medium scale businesses and other market actors in the food processing, community-based tourism, and clean technology sectors to boost business performance, improve their business operating environment, increase access to finance (savings and loans), and advocate for more equitable participation of women and youth in Jordan’s economy.
