Strengthening Institutional Capacities for SME Lending of an MFI in Jordan

EBRD commissioned LFS to support one of the leading MFIs in Jordan and the MENA region. As a non-profit company, the MFI traditionally applies a group lending technology that caters to the financial (and business development) needs of women, as well as provides individual lending.

Following an up-market move into the lower end of the SME finance segment with a pilot test in 2013, the MFI needed support to strengthen its institutional capacities and credit risk management processes.
