The Gemach Achdut is a NGO that grants loans without interest and helps to undertake entrepreneurships, based on the teachings of the famous Maimonides, the Rambam, about the eight levels of tzedaka (charity):
The highest level, above which there is no greater one, is to help a yehudi by granting him a loan, or entering into partnership with him, or by finding him a job, in order to strengthen his hand until he no longer needs to depend on others.
