Put on the VR goggles and get instantly transported to Argentina to listen to waste pickers talk about their daily work and discover how the financing from the European Investment Bank and the European Commission, alongside the Inter-American Development Bank, will soon drastically change their lives as well as the landscape of waste management in the province of Jujuy by 2022.

EIB stories on development
Amani is a busy woman. She is the mother of 4 children and the proud owner of a family business in Jordan selling sweets with a Syrian twist.
It is the kind of project the EIB, our EU partners European Commission's Directorate-General for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, the representation of the EU in Jordan and Microfund for women want to see more of!
The EIB invests in a wide range of projects in sub-Saharan Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific and the Overseas Countries and Territories, from providing the financial support to allow microfinance institutions to lend small amounts to microenterprises and innovators, up to large infrastructure projects.
