Enhancing access to finance

The ILO approach to enhancing finance for small enterprises focuses on building the capacity on both the demand and the supply side (see Figure 1). Financial service providers (FSPs) are strengthened to be able to provide relevant products, and entrepreneurs are capacitated to use those services most effectively. In collaboration with the ILO’s International Training Centre in Turin, the ILO delivers much of the content by training local trainers, which facilitates significant outreach.
