Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are important engines of growth, jobs and social cohesion.

However, the creation, survival and growth of SMEs is often hampered by access to finance. Thus, access to SME finance has become a key priority in developing and transition countries.

Our goal is to support financial institutions in developing and transition countries establish good practices in Micro and SME finance.
