The new European Investment Bank initiative will enable the Palestine Investment Bank to provide EUR 19 million of new financing to entrepreneurs and business through 19 local offices.


The high-impact business financing cooperation, backed by the European Union, complements, and enhances the USD 20 million EIB credit line, to support Palestinian SMEs most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, provided through PIB agreed in 2021.
