Micro Enterprise Development Programme (MEDEP), started in July 1998 and is being implemented in 38 of Nepal’s 75 districts.

MEDEP is a joint initiative of the Ministry of Industry (MoI)/Government of Nepal (GoN) and the UNDP, and both consider it as their flagship activity. The key intent of MEDEP is to alleviate poverty by expanding employment opportunities for the poor, youth, women and individuals from socially excluded groups through instilling sustainable entrepreneurial skill and culture among this group; all MEDEP beneficiaries are selected from households living under the national poverty line. • Motivated by the earlier phases of MEDEP, the Government of Nepal (GoN) in 2008-9 launched its own Micro Enterprise Development for Poverty Alleviation (MEDPA) program, through Ministry of Industry (MoI). This programme is currently being implemented in 69 districts and will be rolled out throughout the country by 2018. MEDEP Project will be handed over to MEDPA/GoN/MoI by end July 2018; hence, it is envisaged that its valuable experiences of 19 years under the MED Model be documented in a high quality Comprehensive MED Model Modular Course Manual Package.

MEDEP has successfully completed its First Phase (1998-2003) as piloting, Second Phase (2004-2008) as district expansion, and Third Phase (2009 – 2013) as district expansion and internalization into Government systems. The first phase as piloting in ten districts with main funding of UNDP and a small grant of Australian Embassy was successful in poverty alleviation of target group families using micro-enterprise as the instrument of poverty alleviation which later resulted into a Micro-Enterprise Development (MED) model. Keeping in view of the success of the Project during the first phase government and UNDP decided and replicated this model in additional 15 districts during the second phase wherein development partners such as DfID, the then AusAID and NZAID mobilized their resources through UNDP to support the Project. During the third phase significant results were not only effective Project service delivery but also in policy implications such as Micro-Enterprise Policy 2007, Industrial Policy 2010 (which included Micro-Enterprise Policy 2007 as a section) Micro-Finance Policy 2007, Community Forest Users Group Guidelines, other Guidelines of Ministry of Forest and Soil Conservation, Agri-business Policy, etc. These policies and Guidelines were micro-enterprise friendly and government for the first time included Micro-Enterprise as priority programme in the Eleventh Three Year Plan (2007/08-2009/10) with programmes, target and budgets. However, it was in 2009/10 the programmes, budgets and targets were included in the Budget Speech.Thereafter government continue to programmes and budget on micro-enterprise development to include in the consecutive periodic plans such as Twelfth Plan (2010/11-2012/13), Thirteenth Plan (2013/14-2015/16) and current Fourteenth Plan (2016/17-2018/19). The internalization and institutionalization process of MED model into government system formally started only after Micro-Enterprise Development for Poverty Alleviation (MEDPA, 2013/14-2017/18) begun as a five year strategic and “flagship programme” which was approved by cabinet meeting in 2013. According to this strategic plan, the government has replicated MED model in all 75 districts in the current Fiscal Year 2017/18. MEDEP IV started from August 2013 and will be implemented until July 2018 overlapping the MEDPA Strategic Plan period. The fourth phase of the Project is geared to institutionalise MED Model into MEDPA.

UNDP/RFP/10/2017 - To Deliver Training on Capacity Building of Partner BFIS on Agriculture Value Chain Financing

UNDP/UNCDF Nepal Office - NEPAL | Published June 30, 2017  -  Deadline July 17, 2017

The UN Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) is the UN’s capital investment agency for the world’s 48 least developed countries. It creates new opportunities for poor people and their communities by increasing access to microfinance and investment capital. UNCDF focuses on Africa and the poorest countries of Asia, with a special commitment to countries emerging from conflict or crisis. It provides seed capital – grants and loans – and technical support to help financial service providers reach more poor households and small businesses, and local governments finance the capital investments that will improve poor people’s lives. Financial inclusion means universal access, at a reasonable cost, to a wide range of financial services, provided by a variety of sound and sustainable institutions. The range of financial services includes savings, credit, insurance, payments, local money transfers and international remittances.UNCDF with the financial support from Government of Denmark is implementing an Access to Finance (A2F) component of UNNATI Programme in the seven hilly districts of Mechi and Kosi corridor – Taplejung, Paanchthar, Ilam, Dhankuta, Terhathum, Bhojpur and Sankhuwasabha through National implementation modality (NIM) in partnership with Nepal Rastra Bank (NRB). This programme has been designed to basically enhance and improve agricultural sector in Nepal. The objective of UNNATI is “Promotion of sustainable inclusive growth that reduces poverty and raises living standards.” Within the context of UNATTI, the purpose of the A2F project is to support financial service providers to more effectively serve the agricultural value chain actors with appropriate financial products thereby enabling smallholder farmers and MSMEs to invest into their value chain activities leading to the sustained improvement in competitiveness of selected value chains. The A2F project interventions will have national impact with a specific focus given to the Eastern Development Region of Nepal. Further the activities of A2F should be, primarily, coordinated with the activities of “Commercialization of selected value chains” Component 1 – sub-component 1.1.A2F has created a Challenge Fund and selected 10 financial service providers (FSPs) through competitive process to finance the value chain actors. These FSPs have been expanding their outreach in the programme districts to provide financial services to the value chain actors.However, Agricultural Value Chain Financing (AVCF) is a relatively new concept in Nepal. Without the overall understanding of agriculture value chains and the specific financial needs of the value chain actors, banks and financial institutions (BFIs) will not be able to design and deliver customized financial products and services that will best match the smallholder farmers and MSMEs' financial needs. There is a need for financial institutions to understand the functioning and requirements of value chain actors including input suppliers, growers, traders, processors, transporters, wholesalers, retailers and final consumers. Banks and financial institutions need to understand the end markets, business enabling environments, linkages, supporting markets, value chain governance, firm and industry level upgrading requirements, etc. By systematically approaching the value chain as a single unit, financial institutions will be able to develop and deliver appropriate financial products which in turn will contribute to the increase in access and use of such products by smallholders and MSMEs; effective risk mitigation by encouraging new and leveraging pre-existing value chain relationships along with an additional area for business expansion and revenue generation for financial institutions.In order to improve knowledge of Banks and Financial Institutions with focus on its current implementing partners in the area of Agriculture Value Chain Finance (AVCF), UNNATI-A2F has developed training module \"Training of Trainers (TOT)\" for banks and Financial Institutions. In 2016, UNNATI-A2F had conducted a 5-day event of TOT for the staff of Project (sub component 1.1 & 1.2), selected Banks and Financial Institutions. Since, in 2017 Performance Based Agreements (PBAs) have been signed for the implementation of agricultural financing projects, consultations with these partners revealed that there is is growing interest and demand from top management, middle management and credit officers of financial institutions for the training on Agricultural Value Chain Finance(AVCF). Thus, UNNATI-A2F project intends to deliver the training as per the training module developed by the project and this TOR has been developed to hire a team of consultant trainers.

Assist UNCDF and the Nepal Rastra Bank to develop an API, which will be able to communicate with the Management Information System or Core Banking Systems used by Financial Institutions to allow data to be pulled directly without the burden of manual reporting by FI staff.UNCDF is the UN’s capital investment agency for the world’s 48 least developed countries (LDCs). With its capital mandate and instruments, UNCDF offers “last mile” finance models that unlock public and private resources, especially at the domestic level, to reduce poverty and support local economic development. This last mile is where available resources for development are scarcest; where market failures are most pronounced; and where benefits from national growth tend to leave people excluded. Nepal Rastra Bank (NRB) Nepal has made significant improvements over the years in terms of financial services delivery outlets/channels offered through both formal and informal financial institutions. Despite that, the level of adults Nepalese above 18 years who are excluded from financial services remains significant. The data from the Finscope Nepal survey 2014 showed that only 40% of the population are banked, with significant disparities between the regions.The central bank of Nepal, Nepal Rastra Bank had deployed various policy instruments to ensure that the financial services are able to make in-roads in remote and rural areas. Still financial services are concentrated in mostly urban and semi-urban areas, with Kathmandu valley region having the highest concentrationFinancial Institutions are required to report a range of data to NRB on a regular basis. Collecting, managing and analyzing key data reported by financial institutions is done by NRB’s Bank and Financial Institution Regulation Department. This is done through a basic reporting system that is managed in-house at NRB and operates on a PHP-MYSQL database system.The current system:· Allows Financial Institutions (FIs) download data reporting templates· Allows FIs to upload their data as formatted CSVs which are then housed in a MYSQL databaseNRB plans to develop a new system which will:· Allow Financial Institutions (FIs) to download data reporting templates· Allow FIs to upload their data in a range of forms including csv, xml, excel· Allow NRB to efficiently manage the accounts of the reporting FIs· Provide timely information on compliance to NRB staff (reports on what data has been submitted by which institution)· Generate standarised reports and send these, via various channels, to key staff on a regular basis· Provide an easy to use interface for the generation of complex, ad hoc reports· Provide an easy to use interface for FIs to upload their data· Authenticate users based on an API-Token· Provide the basis for a range of business intelligence and visualization tools that will allow users to interact dynamically with the data, including spatial data.
