Venue: Hotel Sofitel Cairo El Gezirah, Cairo, Egypt Organized by: SME Banking Club and Big Time International MENA SME Banking Conference 8 December 2016 | Cairo, Egypt Registration: | (+2) 0100 167 0 138 | ABOUT ELSEWEDY ELECTRIC Promotion of Access to Financial Services for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Egypt Providing jobs to millions, SMEs form the backbone of any strong economy. Their capacity for innovation, job cre- ation and ability to adapt to ever-changing business environments makes them a vital building block for economic growth and prosperity. Despite being the largest SME hub in the Middle East, Egypt’s SMEs face multiple challeng- es including legal and regulatory issues, lack of technology adoption, unskilled workers, and, particularly dampen- ing SME growth, access to suitable financial services. Securing formal financing often requires SMEs to undergo long and tedious procedures, forcing many to rely on informal ways to finance their ventures instead. Non-Bank Financial Institutions (NBFIs), such as leasing, factoring, equity finance or insurance companies, can help solve this financing gap by providing financial services outside the banking system. NBFIs can thus provide a wide range of tailored services to SMEs complementary to the services offered by traditional banks. While large in potential, the use of non-bank financial services for SMEs is still in its infancy. Financial services offered to SMEs by NBFIs are strengthened with regard to positive employment effects. The project consists of five main areas of intervention, bringing together relevant actors of the public and private sector: 1. Improving the legal and regulatory framework for NBFIs. The project provides technical assistance to the Egyptian Financial Supervisory Authority (EFSA) in order to support their effort to establish and enable a suitable legal and regulatory framework for SME finance in Egypt. 2. Strengthening the financial market infrastructure. In order to expand credit guarantee schemes and thus make providing financial services to SMEs more attractive, the project supports the Credit Guarantee Company (CGC) by enhancing its institutional and human capacities. Furthermore, it supports the Financial Ser- vices Institute (FSI), EFSA’s research and training institute, in developing demandoriented training programmes for NBFIs. 3. Developing the capacities of selected NBFIs. The project provides technical support at the individual and institutional level to selected NBFIs to help them improve their services to SME clients. 4. Improving access to finance for young companies (startups). The project supports the development and adoption of innovative but also more traditional equity and debt financing instruments to improve the access to finance for young,growth-oriented entrepreneurs. 5. Promoting insurance for SMEs and their employees. The project supports insurance providers in devel- oping new insurance products and distribution channels in order to increase uptake among SMEs and their employees. Read more: ABOUT PAFSME PROJECT
