More information about this loan

KIEDF targets some of the most marginalized groups and areas in Israel with its microfinance services, specifically working with Bedouins, Haredi women, and Israeli-Ethiopians. By contributing to this loan, you are supporting a borrower who otherwise would have very limited access to financial services. 

About KIEDF:

Koret Israel Economic Development Funds (KIEDF) launched its direct lending program, SAWA, in 2006 to help low-income and unemployed populations within Israel create independent income-generating activities. SAWA currently serves Bedouin women in the Negev, Arab Israeli women in northern Israel and Jewish Israeli women. SAWA loans support a wide variety of small business types including consumer goods sales, grocery stores, animal raising, hairdressing, sewing, and day care. SAWA continues to grow and serve new populations while maintaining a loss rate of less than 3%.
