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.

Likewise, the programs will cover the activities, products and services being offered by the partner BFIs and how the products and services can be accessed along the requirements that are attached to accessing them.

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.

UNDP/PN/28/2017 - PROCUREMENT NOTICE for International Expert to conduct a study on the impact of the evolving Federal Structure in Nepal on NRB's Role and Functions

Nepal Rastra Bank (NRB), the central bank of Nepal, was set up in 1956 under the Nepal Rastra Bank Act 1955 and is the monetary, regulatory and supervisory authority of banks and financial institutions. With the pace of development in the financial system, the NRB Act was re-enacted in 2002. According to this new Act, the core objectives of the NRB are to a) achieve price and balance of payments stability, b) manage liquidity and ensure financial stability, c) develop a sound payments system, and) promote financial services. In order to attain these objectives, the Bank's functions and responsibilities include, inter alia, use of monetary policy instruments, foreign exchange management, regulating and supervising the banks and financial institutions, establishing and promoting the payments system, issuing bank notes and coins, and also act as an advisor to the Government of Nepal. Nepal has been practicing a unitary form of government since a long period of time. It has been claimed that this system has not been able to achieve the aimed objectives and rapid development in the country. As people of various languages, ethnic groups, cultures, and traditions are the residents of Nepal, it has been felt that federalism is the solution for their preservation and protections.The term \"federalism\" describes a system of government in which sovereignty is constitutionally divided between a central governing authority and constituent political units (such as states or provinces). Federalism is based upon democratic rules and institutions in which the power to govern is shared between national and provincial/state governments, creating what is often called a federation. The Constitution of Nepal has been prepared and passed by the Parliament. Article 60 (1) has envisaged a three-level of structure: a) Federal Government; b) Regional Government, and c) Local Government.The Constitution of Nepal mandated that ‘central planning, central bank, fiscal policy, money and banking, monetary policy will be under the purview of the central government (annexure 5 of Constitution of Nepal). Likewise, as to the power of the Federal government it states (in the annexure 6 of the Constitution) that ‘as per the policy of the central bank, the operation of the banks and financial institutions and cooperatives will be carried out’.As the Constitution of Nepal has been passed by the Parliament along with the federal structure of the Government, NRB needs to revisit the way it operates now, plan how NRB should be structured to deal with the operational issues at the federal state levels, although the policy issues will remain at the central level.

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.

About 159 MSMEs from seven UNNATI districts of Eastern Region of Nepal have signed agreement with UNNATI Component 1.1 to receive grant for the commercialization of the above-mentioned value chains. Many of such grantees have been able to mobilize equity fund to match the grant assistance and have already started their new venture. However approximately 57 of such grantees have not been able to mobilize equity fund and would need credit from banks and financial institutions (BFIs). Through the support of UNNATI A2F programme, BFIs have expanded their existing networks beyond the district headquarters and thus MSMEs can avail credit from BFIs.

It is in this context that, UNNATI A2F Project is seeking services from qualified Business Acceleration/Incubation Firms in offering capacity building and business plan development services to the UCF Grantees of Component 1.1 that will be acceptable by the banks to offer credit line.The main objective of the assignment is to provide mentoring, guidance and support to 57 agriculture based MSMEs partnered with UNNATI Component 1.1 to take their innovate their business models and prepare a sound, sustainable and scalable business plan based on it and in doing so, transfer knowledge and skills that empower the MSMEs to realize full growth potential of their business models.
