The LAFF shall fund loans to be granted by the BoL to eligible partner Financial Institutions (FI) for the purpose of financing sub-loans to poor households and MSME in rural areas.

The second component includes staff trainings to align the partner FI's operations with the principles of the LAFF, focusing on the entire credit process cycle from credit appraisal to delinquency management, risk management and internal risk audit.

The prequalification of experienced Consultants is subject to the regulations contained in the ‘Guidelines for Assignment of Consultants in Financial Cooperation with Partner Countries’ (see www.kfw-entwicklungsbank.de).
