FATEN – Palestine
FATEN (Palestine for Credit and Development) is a NGO that provides financial support to small entrepreneurs in Palestine. FATEN also supports projects in new economic sectors, as well as farmers who own isolated land near Israel’s separation wall. Its product offering includes group loans, individual loans, Islamic lending, and housing and start-up loans. FATEN is the largest microfinance institute in the region and is active in remote areas. The current stability has allowed FATEN to grow while continuing to serve a majority of women clients, with a high outreach in rural areas and refugee camps. Save the Children created FATEN in 1995 as a non-profit institute with exclusive focus on microfinance. FATEN is a client of Triple Jump since 2010.
