USAID/Jordan anticipates awarding a five-year Cooperative Agreement through a competitive Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO), subject to availability of funding. The Informal Livelihoods Advancement Activity (Iqlaa) aims to place Jordanian micro and small enterprises (MSEs), in both the formal and the informal sectors, on a path to recovery following the unprecedented COVID-19 crisis. Iqlaa will help MSEs in the informal sector to formalize, access Jordan’s safety net systems, and regain productivity and growth. Iqlaa not only promotes economic growth and self-reliance, but most importantly, it supports a vulnerable group within the Jordanian economy whose wellbeing and productivity is critical to the country’s overall stability.

The Economic Development and Energy Office (EDE) supports the Government of Jordan in achieving its macroeconomic reform objectives, developing private sector capacity to compete, harnessing the economic potential of women and youth, and enabling inclusive private sector-led growth. In turn, inclusive private sector-led growth will enhance the capacity of Jordan to grow its economy, create opportunities for women and youth, reduce reliance on the public sector to create jobs, and increase its commitment and capacity to mobilize more of its own resources to finance its development.

Goal: The Informal Livelihoods Advancement Activity (Iqlaa) aims to place Jordanian micro and small Enterprises (MSEs), in both the formal and the informal sectors. on a path to recovery following the unprecedented COVID-19 crisis.
