Palestinian Banking Institute (PBI) is a non-profit organization. PBI delivers specialized training and consultation services in Financial, Banking, Managerial and other topics to enhance targeted audience and sectors’ capabilities and skills.
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and start-ups create jobs and allow many people to earn their own income. However, these types of businesses in the Palestinian Territories have insufficient access to financing. As a result, they cannot implement their ideas, create new products and services, successfully access new markets, or realize their full potential.
The GIZ project “Alternative Approaches to Financial Inclusion of SME in Palestine” (A-FIN) aims to improve the access, usage and quality of financial services for Palestinian enterprises. For that end, A-FIN works on the sides of financial awareness and regulator’s capacities, and facilitates market entries of innovative, technology-driven financial solutions (“Fintech”).
Specifically on the side of financial awareness, A-FIN supports the regulators PCMA and PMA in producing and distributing educational content for enterprises and users; the project furthermore intends to work with social media influencers to distribute online tutorials; and lastly the project targets so-called “multipliers” – institutions and individuals that themselves reach out to enterprises, train and advise, influence or teach them.
This cooperation with a trainer shall support the financial awareness component towards multipliers. This would be envisioned to be implemented by customized events and trainings in a Training-of-Trainer’s approach targeting the specific informational needs and interests for the demand and interests of SMEs, entrepreneurs and start-ups – explicitly comprising all available and desirable ways of financial products and services (banking & non-banking) and enterprise finance, including classical products, alternative products, Islamic products, and innovative, technology-driven solutions.
Palestinian multipliers who reach out to enterprises are capacitated to provide trainings and advisory for enterprises on the responsible use of financial services. The multipliers shall have knowledge, tools and networks to be enabled to share (more) information on financial services for enterprises and serve as knowledge multipliers.
