Making Cents International (Making Cents) is leading the implementation of the Hawiyatii Digital Identity pilot project ("the pilot project") in Jordan, funded by the SANAD Technical Assistance Facility and in partnership with Microfund for Women (MFW) and the International Rescue Committee (IRC) Jordan. The goal of the pilot project is to develop and test a blockchain-based digital identity with different segments of Syrian refugees living in Jordan in order to assess the identity's impact on refugees' access to and repayment of credit and their hope for the future.

The digital identity platform, branded as Hawiyatii ("my identity" in Arabic), was designed to address two separate use cases for refugees. One, it will act as a "digital locker" that allows individuals to upload important information, such as their identification documents, employment history, and educational or training records that they can use as a back-up to their hard copies when proving identity or demonstrating experience. Two, it will facilitate microfinance institutions in Jordan, Syria, or elsewhere in assessing individuals' creditworthiness and encourage loan repayment, as the refugees' history of loan transactions will be captured on the platform. The identity may also serve other purposes, such as facilitating employment, as the platform allows refugees' work experience to be independently verified by former employers and presented to new employers to demonstrate qualifications.

The M&E Coordinator will lead the pilot project's M&E activities, overseeing quantitative and qualitative data collection activities, analyzing data or working with others to analyze data, and contributing to evaluation reports on the results of the pilot project.
