Occupied Palestinian Territory: Boosting Palestinian rural cooperatives through micro-grants
RAMALLAH [ACTED News] - Eleven Palestinian rural cooperatives from the Salfit and Qalqiliya governorates have signed micro-grant agreements with ACTED. These micro-grants were provided to cooperatives that competitively submitted strong and viable proposed income-generating projects. The grants are hoped to provide an incentive to improve the cooperatives’ business plan development skills and to adopt principles communicated to them in the previously conducted training sessions on management, administration and financial capacity building. This project is supported by the European Union.
