PROGRAMS

SUPPORT TO YOUTH'S ENTREPRENEURSHIP & FINANCIAL INCLUSION

In partnership with the European Union and Al Amal Microfinance Bank, the overall objective of the program is to create conditions for youth economic empowerment to prevent the radicalization and recruitment of youth into militant groups and ensuring their financial inclusion by establishing a grant fund to finance youth enterprises, as well as providing them with financial and non-financial services.

YOUTH LOAN FUND

Silatech has a longstanding partnership with Al Amal Microfinance Bank (AMB) on the development of innovative youth financial services. Through this pioneering project with AMB, a youth strategy has been developed for the financial institution which has included a loan product for existing youth-run enterprises, a startup product called Mashrou3i, a youth savings account, and support to the creation of a sister entity Al Amal Foundation which provides pre- and post-finance training and business support to youth-run enterprises.
