With the first component, EBRD will make financing available to eligible women-led MSMEs through Participating Financial Institutions (“PFIs”) for on-lending to sub-borrowers. The Technical Cooperation component will consist of PFI Support including capacity-building, product development, marketing and programme support, which will ensure overall project management across different PFIs. The Advice for Small Business (ASB) component is intended to facilitate increased access to know-how and non-financial development services for women-led enterprises, as well as access to markets through networking opportunities.
Assignment Description:
