  6. 6. Impact of the case study (real or expected) for rural women and their organisations• SUFW is an organization which fights for women rights , organize them in cooperatives and unions and develop them economically by giving them the opportunity to have their own projects• The law of the General Union of Jordanian farmers, which provides that a member of the union should have possession of the land of not less than 10 acres. We have solved this problem .Rather than owning land women can rent land and that makes it easy for them to be members in the Farmers Union. Therefore we increased the proportion of women in the General Farmer Union in Jordan from less than 1% to 8% and we aspire to increase.• Develop them culturally by training them and building their capacity through workshops , training sessions , shows and participating in national occasions .
