Micro-, small and medium-sized enterprises in emerging markets: how banks can grasp a $350 billion opportunity

Micro-, small and medium-sized enterprises in emerging markets: how banks can grasp a $350 billion opportunity

This paper argues that the time is right for banks to step up their effortsto serve micro-, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) inemerging markets. There are three reasons for our optimism. First, anestimated 60 per cent of global banking revenue growth over the nextdecade will lie in emerging markets. Second, more and more banks inemerging markets are finding ways to overcome the difficulties of servingthe important MSME segment. Third, innovations in technology, riskassessment and business models are increasingly facilitating their effort.

Learning from Leaders in a Fast-Growing Field: Results from the first Dalberg Survey of Social Enterprise - Dalberg Global Development Advisors

Posted By Saurabh Lall, ANDE, Friday, December 16, 2011
December 2011

Social enterprise, once a poorly understood cousin of charities and non-governmental organizations, has become a mainstream part of the business sector around the world. Its growth is a validation of two central principles: 1) that it is possible to do well by doing good, and 2) that financial sustainability is the key to maximizing the social benefit of an organization. 

To help them on their way, this survey has collected both basic information and insights gained through experience from dozens of prominent social entrepreneurs. We placed particular emphasis on the factors underpinning their success and the challenges they currently faced, but we also encouraged them to proffer advice to social entrepreneurs entering the field for the first time. The questions were designed for brief and easy answers, but respondents were welcome to expand upon their answers and provide general commentary as well. A complete facsimile of the survey  is available online at http://dalberg.com/news under "Recent Publications.”

Posted By Saurabh Lall, ANDE, Friday, December 16, 2011
December 2011

The Rainforest Alliance and the Citi Foundation Sustainable Value Chain Finance Workshop was held in April 2011 in New York City. It brought together actors in agriculture value chains - representing buyers, exporters, retailers, producers, insurers, the financial sector, civil society and development partners. During the Workshop the participants addressed the following questions:

  • What is being done already in sustainable value chain finance that we can learn from?
  • Which value chain finance instruments might lend themselves to incentivizing sustainability?
  • How do we mainstream sustainable value chain finance?
  • How do we pilot test injecting sustainability into new instruments in our value chains?
