Supporting entrepreneurs in developing countries
We offer micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) in developing countries better access to the financing and support services they need. Our objective is to help entrepreneurs position themselves in the market and grow.
Entrepreneurship as driver of economic and social change
The economies of developing and emerging countries are dominated by MSMEs, which are often informal and precarious in nature. By focusing on entrepreneurs, we help them create jobs, drive sustainable development and reduce poverty.
