Canaan Microloans Program


Canaan Microloan program, run by PFTA, has been designed to target women producers all over the West Bank, where soft loans are extended to women who have plans for new business ideas or expansion of existing ones. Many of these women are non-banked, and are unable to secure other types of financing, that’s why this program is a perfect fit for them, as it enables them to be an effective part of the society by owning and running their own business. Aside from the loan itself, PFTA provides the women with access to technical assistance packages, training, as well as being part of PFTA network of producers which opens the doors for these women to collectively bargain for inputs and sales of their produce.
