This success story discusses the ESAF programs partnership with The Palestine Institute for Financial and Banking Studies (PIFBS). Throughout 2010, under the leadership of ESAF implementing partner William Davidson Institute (WDI) and in cooperation with the Jordan-based Arab Academy for Banking and Financial Sciences, PIFBS completed two international certification diploma courses in the areas of SME banking and human resource management. ESAF’s intervention helped students return to their employers with expanded knowledge and techniques based on international best practices.
