Celebrating five years of partnership

Societe Generale de Banque – Jordanie (SGBJ) renewed its partnership agreement last month with Al Marji’ Publications for the fifth consecutive year.

“We are pleased with our partnership with Al Marji’ Publications and are glad to promote SGBJ’s products and various activities and Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives through Family Flavours and Nakahat ‘Ailiyeh magazines – both distinguished in the Jordanian market,” said Nadim Abaouat, General Manager of SGBJ at the signing.

This agreement strengthens ongoing cooperation between SGBJ and Al Marji’ Publications, publishers of Nakahat ‘Ailiyeh and Family Flavours, Jordan’s only parenting magazines.

“Our partnership with SGBJ continues to grow and evolve by promoting the services provided by the bank to our readers – predominately women and men, parents of teens and children, who look for ways to invest in the future of their families,” said Hind-Lara Mango, Publisher and Managing Director of Al Marji’ Publications.

Dr Renad Seheimat spoke last month to about 20 mothers – all beneficiaries of Microfund for Women (MFW) – about the foods, products and practices that are harmful to our bodies. The field visit was co-sponsored and organised by Family Flavours and MFW.

“I never knew that coconut oil could be used for cooking and for the skin. I will definitely start using it!” exclaimed Alia Abbadi, a mother of four. She has been taking loans from MFW to support her daughters through university along with her own business from home, where she makes bracelets and natural soaps.

“I’m going to start buying herbal teas and cut down on sugar and meat,” said Alia Huwari after listening to

Dr Suheimat. Huwari is one of the women benefiting from the MFW – the loan she took out through them helped her son settle his debts.
