Microfinance Programs 
Programs provide credit combined with business services to help low income and ‎unemployed populations create an independent income generating activity: 

SAWA (together): Non-bank loans of 4,000 to 30,000 NIS combined with business ‎service are given through solidarity group methodology or individually to low income ‎entrepreneurs (mainly Arab women) for the development of their businesses. SAWA ‎started operating in 2006 with Bedouin women of the Negev and after overwhelming ‎success, expanded across the country. Since 2011, the Israeli Government provides ‎‎50% match for operation and loan fund costs.
