BDB and BENEFIT Launch Fawateer “Assignment” to support SMEs

Bahrain Development Bank announces the launch of Fawateer Assignment in collaboration with BENEFIT, as part of their efforts to support SMEs. Fawateer Assignment is a special arrangement that will enable BDB’s customers who are or who want to be billers on Fawateer to secure their loans by having all the Fawateer proceeds of the biller to be directly deposited in the biller’s accounts with BDB, through the Fawateer service provided by BENEFIT.


This arrangement will contribute to reducing the customer’s credit risk and facilitating the provision of financing to SMEs, especially the ones that are unable to provide other forms of security for their financing requirements. By activating this service, the customer will be able to deposit their Fawateer proceeds into their BDB’s account directly for the duration of the financing period.

Sanjeev Paul, CEO of BDB mentioned that the launch of Fawateer Assignment is an advantage for all the parties involved.

“We are truly pleased to launch this arrangement in collaboration with BENEFIT and we are sure this will have a positive impact on all parties involved.
