Tamweelcom relocates Salt office to better serve clients
Salt – The Jordan Micro Credit Company (Tamweelcom) celebrated the relocation of its Salt branch into a newer building on the first floor of the Commercial Center behind the Salt Municipality, right next door to the Holy Koran Memorization Association.

The ceremony was held on December 23, 2012 under the patronage of Al-Balqa’a Governor Hassan Al-Assaf with Tamweelcom Executive Director Ziad Al-Refai in attendance, as well as a number of Al-Balqa' dignitaries and clients.  The new branch in Salt will serve more than 3000 clients who transferred their accounts from the former location.  The Salt branch has provided services to more than 7500 clients since it opened in 2009.

The relocation is part of Tamweelcom's desire to be located in client centers, in order to facilitate easy access to services and to reduce the burden on clients in terms of transportation and time.  Al-Balqa' is considered among the most important governorates in the Kingdom, with an area of 1070 square kilometers and a population of 409,000 people, representing 6.7% of the total population.  The new branch is located in Salt's city center.  In addition, the new branch was designed to provide comfort and facility for clients, emanating from the Company's slogan:  "Tamweelcom Cares".

"I am very happy with your new branch, which is closer to me,” remarked Fatimah Al-Zu’bi.  “I offer my congratulations to Tamweelcom, which aims, through this step to provide the best service to us."  Al-Zu’bi owns a food and sweets project, and has been a client of the Salt branch for about five years.

Tamweelcom Executive Director Ziad Al-Refai remarked, "the branch relocation aims at delivering our financial and non-financial services to locations in close proximity to all clients, thereby providing simplified and easy procedures to obtain financing.  Tamweelcom employs the best principles applied internationally in micro-financing.  The step to relocate the branch came after extensive studies and surveys which emphasized to us that we are capable of providing the very best for our clients in this new location."

Tamweelcom is a non-profit company and is one of the pioneering microfinance companies in Jordan that endeavors to fight poverty and unemployment.  It is fully owned by the Noor Al-Hussein Foundation (King Hussein Foundation).  More than 135,000 clients, 93% of whom are women, have received funding since Tamweelcom's establishment in 1999.
