Building Economic Sustainability through Tourism Project

Business development and financial management workshop for SME handicraft producers

3 Sep 2018 to 5 Sep 2018

To increase women’s access to tourism investment opportunities, USAID BEST in collaboration with the Jordan Handicraft Producers Association and Jordan Ahli Bank will hold a three-day training workshop for members of the association. The workshop targets women with pre-existing handicraft enterprises that wish to expand their business. Attendees will learn how to execute sound business plans to present strong loan applications to banks. During the workshop, Jordan Ahli Bank will introduce its Al Nashmiat Initiative, a service package that offers support to women-owned businesses through a series of training courses and forums.  This workshop will increase participants’ chances of obtaining funding that will assist them in both expanding and sustaining their tourism businesses.
