About Us

The Jordan Loan Guarantee Corporation (JLGC) was established as a public shareholding company in May 17, 1994 with a paid up capital of JD 7 million as a legal heir for “Loan Guarantee” project, which was founded by United States Agency for International Development in 1989, and was managed by the Industrial Development Bank until September 1993. The company’s aim was to provide the necessary guarantees to facilitate financing of SMEs owned by the private sector and working in all productive economic fields in Jordan.

In 1997, the capital was increased to 10 million JD in order to accompany the economic developments, and activate our role in the Jordanian economy. Moreover, Export Credit Insurance program has been added to encourage the Jordanian exporters to export their products by providing insurance to cover their commercial and non-commercial which their exports could be exposed to.

In 2016, the capital was increased to 29 million, to raise the applicable credit limits and develop new guarantee instruments for SMEs’ loans and Export Credit.

Jordan Loan Guarantee Corporation began with one simple program for SME’s guarantees. Now there are 2 major programs tailored to improve SME access to finance and provide more risk measured instruments to banks and exporters.

  1. Loan Guarantee.
  2. Export and Domestic Credit Guarantee.

In the Name of God the Merciful the Compassionate,

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.
