Partner description: Alibdaa Microfinance is a microfinance institution in Palestine with the goal of increasing entrepreneurial activity, especially among women, by providing sustainable financial services. They currently work in 5 areas within the West Bank, focusing on small villages and more rural areas. Alibdaa seeks to keep their loans small in order to reach the neediest populations in Palestine. Alibdaa is also the first Palestinian MFI working in East Jerusalem, something that was made possible through a partnership with a local women's center in the city's Shuafat Refugee Camp.
A unique lending approach: Alibdaa’s main loan product will be their Sayedati loan, a small loan which targets women who might otherwise be unable to receive loans. In addition to the Sayedati product, Alibdaa will post youth loans and business loans targeting microentrepreneurs in their first loan cycle. Alibdaa also works to provide numerous pay points and electronic payment options, ensuring that clients in rural areas do not need to travel far to make monthly repayments.
