(Overall project term)
Although more than 20 per cent of all MSMEs in Tajikistan are led by women, the country’s financial institutions still do not regard them as a market segment in their own right and therefore extend only very few loans to women. In the capital city of Dushanbe especially, women entrepreneurs are frequently unable to access loans and lack the basic economic know-how they require to succeed.
With training and coaching services, Sparkassenstiftung is assisting local financial institutions to develop suitable organisational structures, business models and strategies that will permit efficient lending to women in business.
