Rapid Assessment for Cash Feasibility

Document Type: Assessments , COVID-19
Document Language: English
This rapid assessment aims to gain a better understanding of the impact of COVID19-related lockdown on Jordanians and refugees’ access to markets, goods and financial services providers. The survey link was sent through a KoboCollect link via SMS to 2533 Jordanian and refugee households registered on Caritas Jordan’s Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system. Selected interviewees received a short text message from Caritas Jordan requesting to fill a survey linked in the text. Most interviewees are Syrians, followed by respondents of Jordanian, Iraqi, Palestinian and ‘other’ nationalities. The interviewees are mostly located in Irbid, Zarqa, Amman and Mafraq. A large majority of respondents reported rent, food, debt repayment, utilities and health services as their most urgent needs. Rent is the most commonly reported priority for refugees (91%) and the second-most reported for Jordanians (63%). The majority of households reported being able to access markets. Some regional variations exist in Mafraq,
