The Palestinian Investment Partners (PIP) was a grant program under the USAID|AED Expanded and Sustained Access to Financial Services (ESAF) Program. PIP issued grants to small, locally owned businesses in the West Bank and Gaza, Palestinian Territories, to procure new equipment and technology transfers. As part of its communication strategy, ESAF drafted success stories highlighting the benefits of PIP’s grants to the businesses and the Palestinian economy. In Summer 2010, Rachel interviewed grantees, researched businesses, and photographed equipment to create some of the success stories included in this document.
