This success story discusses the Expanded and Sustained Access to Financial Services (ESAF) Program’s Palestinian Investment Partners (ESAF/PIP) work with GBS, a stone and marble factory established in Jenin in 1998. ESAF/PIP, managed by AED, was established to support small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the West Bank that have the greatest potential to create jobs and help mitigate constraints associated with restrictions on the movement and access of people and goods.
