Abstract: This paper aims at describing the Bank of “Zakat” eL-Zawa as a potential zakat-based microfinance. eL-Zawa uses the donation from “muzakki” to be its capital and distributes that money to the poor. The contracts of fund distribution are mostly “qardh al-hasan” (free-interest loan) and “mudharabah” (profit-lost sharing). In “qardh al-hasan” program, eL-Zawa distributes the capital to the poor as interest-free loan. Meanwhile, in “mudharabah” version, it provides the capital for the successful members of “qardhul hasan” program to develop their business. Bank of “Zakat” eL-Zawa wants to implement professional system and still keeping its features: helping the poor and avoiding exploitation of the recipients.
