Geographic Scope
South Lebanon

This project targeted two small groups of entrepreneurs in South Lebanon (mainly in Tyre and Marjayoun): individuals focused on providing short-stay hosting services for tourists in South Lebanon; and individuals/cooperatives working in agro-processing and the supply of artisan products.

ADR together with SEAL aimed to support economic recovery in South Lebanon, and boost the income of these targeted groups, by: establishing formal relationships between them so that they could cooperate; developing or reinforcing the skills they needed to succeed in their endeavors; and improving their asset base (e.g. machinery, computers etc.). SEAL funded this last initiative - asset building.
