Description of the Project

Micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) account for 60% of GDP and 70% of employment in the Middle East and North Africa – they are crucial to a vibrant economy. Limited access to financial resources, however, keeps MSMEs from fulfilling their role as an engine of economic growth, employment and prosperity.
