Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) help satisfy local demand for services, offer local employment, and provide larger firms with inputs and services.
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) help satisfy local demand for services, offer local employment, and provide larger firms with inputs and services. Access to capital is often a major constraint for SMEs; local commercial banks might perceive them as being too “risky” to qualify for traditional loans. Yet, SMEs are often too large to qualify for support from microfinance
Investing in SME Funds contributes to building and developing local businesses as the local Fund Managers can provide SME entrepreneurs with access to risk capital, as well as advice and support. That’s why we established the W Bank to provide end to end advisory for SME financing including working capital finance, loan against property, bank guarantees, trade finance, and foreign currency loans and to help support and finance more types of investors and to invest in individuals with creative and innovative ideas after reviewing and analyzing these ideas through our team of professionals to assess their proposals and appropriateness.
We also advise SME clients on debt restructuring and change/transition management.
