In an effort to help Sderot business owners recover from the loss of business that they experienced as a result of increased Kassam attacks, the Industry, Trade and Labor Ministry requested from the government that they include a special loan of up to NIS 500,000 in the compensation package that has been constructed for Sderot-region business owners. According to the proposal, which was submitted to the government on Wednesday by Industry, Trade and Labor minister Eli Yishai, the money will be loaned to those owners in need of additional funds above the regular compensation package and will be awarded in order to help owners rebuild, repair and improve their businesses.
