|Hintergrund||Despite the political and economic volatility in the region, micro finance institutions have proven relatively resilient. They continue to play a key role in providing capital to MSMEs to spur economic growth and job creation. There remains, however, a significant access to finance gap: close to 65 percent of all MSMEs in the region do not have access to financial resources- a number which would be much higher when taking into account the informal MSME sector. The Fund is manged by Frankfurt-based Finnace in Motion and supported by KfW and BMZ.|
