Clean Energy concept is gaining increasing popularity in Jordan, among both households and businesses, because it is cheaper and cleaner source of energy. This popularity created significant demand on clean energy products presenting a huge potential for profit for new entrants to this market. This motivated Nasser Al-Madani to establish Jordan Sun Company for Renewable Energy Solutions in Aqaba in 2012.

Facilitated by USAID JLGF, the company received a loan in 2014 to expand its operations. The loan was used to increase the stock of equipment (i.e. solar panels, cables and transformers) for the projects under execution and for future projects.

“I was excited when the bank told me that I can take the loan even though I do not have adequate guarantees.” said Nasser. “The loan enabled us to have stronger financial position and thus accept more projects.”
