Entrepreneurship Development and Non-Financial Services

Our experience in implementing non-financial programs has shown that the most successful programs are supported by institutional commitment from top management.

SMEs are instrumental to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, by contributing to inclusive and sustainable economic growth, providing employment, fostering innovation, and reducing income inequalities, Despite their importance, however, it is not uncommon for SMEs around the world, and particularly in developing economies, to face constraints to growth that are driven by access to both knowledge and finance, among other factors.

A tailored non-financial services program for segmented  small and growing businesses, integrated into a robust relationship banking model, has the potential to increase targeted customers’ overall value to the bank, by helping customers strengthen and grow their businesses, while building and strengthening their relationship with the bank.
