In partnership with the Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature (RSCN), INVESTBANK has taken the lead in supporting organic farming and in the development of Al Shams Farmers' Market – Jordan's First Organic Market.
Through its social responsibility activities, INVESTBANK supports unique and effective initiatives that build the capacities of individuals and communities to achieve greater success and prosperity and foster the spirit of loyalty and responsibility towards the larger community.
In order to grow and sustain the produce of local farmers of Ajloun, INVESTBANK has trained the farmers to decrease the amount of wasted produce and properly package the production. INVESTBANK has also funded the organic seeds, pesticides, fertilizers and water tanks. In one year, the farmers were able to double their production and start trading in their local market.
INVESTBANK has facilitated new channels of selling, enabling organic farmers to go beyond their mainstream, local community in 'Ajloun and reach a new market in Amman and experience a level of higher end marketing, sales and trade.
Visit the INVESTBANK sponsored and RSCN managed Al Shams Farmers' Market. The market carries fresh produce as well as naturally grown packaged items such as olive oil, dry beans, herbs, honey and jams and is open every Friday from 10:00 to 18:00 at Wild Jordan in Jabal Amman.
