Grameen Foundation supports microfinance across the Middle East and North Africa through Grameen-Jameel Microfinance Limited. Grameen Foundation and Abdul Latif Jameel Community Initiatives, a subsidiary of the Abdul Latif Jameel Group jointly established the company in 2003 and incorporated it in 2007.

Grameen-Jameel is headquartered in Dubai and provides financial and technical assistance to microfinance institutions in the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey. Modeled after the social business concept championed by Professor Muhammad Yunus, it reinvests profits into the business rather than distributing dividends to keep capital flowing into the hands of borrowers who need it.
