Delegation of the European Union to Jordan

Promoting Financial Inclusion in Jordan

20/02/2018 - 16:28

Greater access to financial services promotes social stability, stimulates inclusive economic growth and employment, and stabilises the financial system.

Easier, safer and wider access to finance for all can carry forward the economic and social empowerment of the unbanked and financially under-served parts of the population. And a wider use of better financial services can help people to improve their life and create more business opportunities. Since 2014, the European Union supports the Government of Jordan and the microfinance association Tanmeyah in promoting financial inclusion for all in Jordan. GIZ provides complementary technical assistance.
