This is the final evaluation report for the CARE International in Jordan project “Building Sustainable Livelihoods for Refugees and the Poor, especially Women” is a sixteen-month’s project that was implemented by CARE Jordan between April 2019 and July 2020 and funded by Rotary International. The project focused on building the capacity of 175 Jordanian and Syrians entrepreneurs in order to create and accelerate local businesses through conducting small business building and mentoring sessions and distributing toolkits. The project was implemented in East Amman area which is classified as one of the less fortunate areas in Jordan.

The evaluation demonstrated that the strategies, approaches and the interventions utilized within this project were efficient enough to guarantee that the majority of the businesses will be sustained and continued in the future. However, the evaluation also highlighted the impact of COVID-19 on the project and that timely procurement and planning processes also delayed implementation.
