Kafalah Program

The small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are usually unable, in most of its financial transactions with banks, to provide the sufficient guarantees in order to get the desired funding despite its economic feasibility. Therefore, Kafalah Program has been established with the support of the Ministry of Finance and banks operating in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia; which its management was assigned to the Saudi Industrial Development Fund. The Program guarantees to the banks a proportion of the funding granted to the SMEs – for the purpose of enabling such enterprises to get the funding from the banks, as well as encouraging and urging the banks to fund such enterprises after verifying its economic feasibility.
