Syrian conflict affects traders in Jordan

Small businesses suffer as influx of refugees puts Jordanian government under pressure.

The flow of refugees from the fighting has forced the Jordanian government to ask for international help.

Jordan and the UN refugee agency say $700m is needed to help 140,000 Syrians there.

But, it is not just the government in Jordan that is affected, small businesses who used to move goods across the border are now struggling to continue their businesses.
