In the Name of God the Merciful the Compassionate,


It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the official website of the Jordan Loan Guarantee Corporation (JLGC). We have designed this website with the aim of keeping our browsers abreast of the significant role that JLGC plays to motivate the local banks and other financial institutions at the kingdom to provide improved services and financing to Small and Medium Sized enterprises (SMEs). A contribution that enables SMEs to create new job opportunities and reduce poverty rates. JLGC also supports the national exports by providing credit insurance to exporters against the risk of non-payment by the importers and buyers of the Jordanian goods.

The corporation is looking forward to achieving its objectives in a professional, responsible, and corporative commitment.  JLGC is keen to improve its services in all levels in collaboration with main partners of the public and private sectors. Particularly financial institutions which showed a great response with the development efforts of the Corporation that enabled JLGC to achieve an obvious growth in the volume and returns of its operations. 

JLGC operational departments keep exerting the efforts to improve guarantee program and services through increasing the corporate efficiency in loan and credit export guarantees and improve underwriting systems and risk assessment pricing and safe allocation of credit portfolio. Furthermore, increasing the internal capacity in financial risks management for the current programs, and increasing the abilities of granting guarantees for amounts exceeding the current limits.

JLGC is keen to expand guarantees to all economically viable sectors that create jobs and enhance economic growth. It also keeps improving its operational revenues and the human resources and training systems to reach operational sustainability
