Those of us privileged to offer organized support for the work of KIEDF are especially pleased that our loan guarantee model has proven its effectiveness even under extremely difficult economic conditions. Since its inception in 1994, KIEDF has become a premier source of financial assistance to small businesses – so much so that the Israeli government has adopted the KIEDF model for its own small business loan program.
Under the management of the Milken Institute, the Koret-Milken Institute Fellows Program in economic policy research helps create synergy between policymaking and small-business issues. Koret-Milken Institute Fellows are selected from the brightest graduates of Israel’s universities and placed with members of Knesset or regulatory agency heads. Their mission is to develop and advocate free-market policies that address issues which facilitate small-business development, employment expansion, and private-sector, economic growth in Israel.
We are committed to increasing both our lending capacity and our policy research program. To help us continue addressing the financing and policy needs of small businesses in Israel, please consider a contribution to AFKIEDF.
