KIEDF Arab Small Business Fund is a loan fund that provides vital loan finance to small businesses owned by Arab-Israelis.

A large percentage of Arab-Israeli families make their living through the small business sector. Unfortunately, different government and banking credit programmes and products do not meet their needs, while no social credit programme targets the Arab sector. Credit shortages send many to the grey market, a move that can endanger business owners and their families.

The KIEDF loan fund ensures the continued operation of these businesses after a particularly difficult COVID-19 year.
