COVID-19 Relief Fund

The COVID-19 pandemic has created a global economic crisis that has impacted all types of businesses, with small and medium enterprises taking the biggest hit.

We understand that these uncertain times have created financial pressure and burdens for business owners, and we believe that SMEs are the key to rebuilding our economy.

If you have a small to medium sized business and have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, you can now apply for our Relief Fund which offers 0-2% interest loans with access to funds up to 1,000,000 JOD to help cover salaries and any other operational expenses.  

How can I get a zero-interest loan for my company?

As part of our efforts to support local SMEs, organizations that need funding to pay employee salaries only can receive a zero-interest loan. If you are applying for the loan to pay off suppliers, rent or utilities your loan will be subject to interest.
