Project Description

This project aims to deliver on three key components: 1. Develop a strong evidence base to enable data based policy reform– this will include two assessments – (i) a gap analysis of unmet demand and supply of financial services in Nepal in the context of federal structure of Nepal as well as (ii) a well-defined MSME Finance strategy – as a follow up to key FSAP and CPSD recommendations. Support will also be extended to the authorities in the implementation of a number of key policy recommendations and initiatives based on the gap analysis and MSME Finance Strategy to be developed. 2. Policy implementation support for enabling financial infrastructure and digital platforms 3. Development and roll out of new & innovative instruments for MSME Finance
