Following the Central Bank’s decision dated 5/5/2011 authorizing NCLW to grant small loans through banks, NCLW launched “Najah Loan” allowing women to benefit from concessional loans for the purpose of financing economic, industrial, agricultural, touristic, technological and service-based activities. In 2014, NCLW signed an agreement with the Lebanese Association for Development-Al-Majmoua to implement a joint project SEWA which aims at providing technical assistance for women who wish to benefit from NCLW’s loans.
