Title: Jordan - Rural Economic Growth and Employment Project (REGEP) – March 2023
Description: Israa Al-Zoubi, a mother for 4, from Deira village in the Al Balqa region, is one of the beneficiaries of REGEP project. She received an agribusiness grant to grow thyme in greenhouses.

“I received the grant along with some training and mentoring from the project. Before the project, I didn't have a job, but now I have my own business. I planted 6000 seedlings of thyme in greenhouses, and all my products are organic" Israa says

The Rural Economic Growth and Employment Project (REGEP) focuses on rural areas of the Governorates of Ajloun, Jerash, Balqa, Madaba and Mafraq.

In line with the Government's Poverty Reduction Strategy 2013-2020, the project targets rural households below the poverty line, and vulnerable rural households above the poverty who are at high risk of falling into poverty.

The project's goal is the reduction of poverty, vulnerability and inequality in rural areas through the creation of productive employment and income-generating opportunities for the rural poor and vulnerable, especially youth and women.
