Jordan: Leaving No One Behind13 February 2018
Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan was once a rural town of 12,000 inhabitants. It is now home to at least 120,000 refugees - most of whom have fled the conflict in Syria. This sudden increase in population created competition for already limited resources. But investments in agricultural production and access to microfinance loans have given host communities and refugees opportunities to run their own businesses and feed their families.
