Case study on Alternative SME Finance and Informal Finance

Financial Sector Deepening – Mozambique (FSDMoç̧) is a six-year (2014-2020) program that is funded by the UK Government’s Department for International Development and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency. The program focuses on addressing the financial market constraints and supporting the diversification to catalyze economic growth and resilience of the people in Mozambique.

FSDMoç̧ contracted MSC to assess FSDMoç’s project interventions in facilitating systemic change to enable SME finance and informal finance. From the assessment, MSC has developed this case study detailing some of the interventions that have been put in place by FSDMoç̧, the lessons learnt, insights, the impact of the intervention, and recommendations on how to create a more enabling environment for SME finance and informal finance in Mozambique.
