MSME Development



We believe that the Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) are the backbone of an economy. They maintain an appreciable growth rate and generate employment opportunities. This sector is the engine of social development in many developing countries.

The essential key to the successful development and survival of MSMEs is the role of financial management. Unlike large firm, small firms and entrepreneurs operates in different business environment. Hence there approach and methods of managing finance substantially differs.


The overall objective is to promote financial stability and to develop diversified, efficient and inclusive financial systems, at the global and country-level and support developing countries and the global community in addressing most pressing financial sector challenges.  Other Objectives include:

  • Ensure financial access and services extend to hard-to-reach populations, including women and the rural poor.
  • Increase citizens’ financial literacy and capability so they understand different financial services and products.
  • Ensure everyone has valid identification documents, and a low-cost, accessible means for them to be authenticated.
  • Devise useful and relevant financial products, tailored to consumer needs.
  • Establish robust financial consumer protection frameworks, and adapt relevant regulatory and supervisory authorities, including by utilizing technology to improve supervision.
  • Improve MSMEs’ access to finance and find innovative solutions to unlock sources of capital.
