United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) is the UN agency mandated to focus primarily on the world’s Least Developed Countries (LDCs). It creates new opportunities for poor people and their communities by increasing A2F and investment capital. UNCDF focuses on Africa and the poorest countries of Asia, with a special commitment to countries emerging from conflict and crisis. It provides seed capital – grants and loans – and technical support to help financial service providers reach more poor households, and small business through inclusive finance approach, and local governments finance the capital investments that would improve poor peoples’ lives.UNCDF has signed an agreement with Nepal Rastra Bank, under the broader UNNATI Inclusive Growth Program agreement signed between the Government of Denmark and the Government of Nepal, where NRB is implementing Access to Finance (A2F) component of UNNATI Growth Programme in the seven hilly districts of Mechi and Koshi corridor – Taplejung, Panchthar, Ilam, Dhankuta, Terhathum, Bhojpur, and Sankhuwasabha with the assistance of UNCDF. This programme has been designed basically to enhance and improve agricultural sector financing in Nepal. The objective of UNNATI is “promotion of sustainable inclusive growth that reduces poverty and raises living standards”. Within the context of UNNATI, the purpose of 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 have national impact with a specific focus given to the Eastern Development Region (EDR) of Nepal.

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.

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.

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).
