Supporting small business in the West Bank via CHF International microfinance

You know I support small business in the West Bank through Kiva and CHF International, encouraged by the Israeli, Palestinian, and US governments.

Well, here's someone I met recently, CHF International's Country Director in the West Bank, Lana Abu-Hijleh. She gets stuff done, has been working on Palestinian issues for two decades and is leading some important programs in Palestine on microfinance, job creation, infrastructure and governance.

Lana was featured recently in the Huffington Post as "one of the most impressive women I've ever met in my life" by writer Fadi Elsalameen. You can read more here.

This is a big deal, focusing on real stuff of interest to all involved.
