In 1995, the international NGO Save The Children founded the microfinance institution FATEN, with the motto “Credit and Development for Palestine”. This non-profit institution is the largest microfinance institution in the region and is active in remote areas.


FATEN offers a wide range of sustainable financial services for low-income and economically active small businesses, microentrepreneurs and individuals, especially women. Through advanced human resources and technical infrastructure, it contributes to the empowerment of families and community development in Palestine.
