We received word of this great new resource this week:
The SME Finance Forum, managed by IFC, is excited to announce the launch of its new website. The site features a fresh look and over 200 knowledge resources on SME finance including data, tools, research and best practices.
Although an overwhelming majority of jobs in emerging economics are created by SMEs, access to finance remains one of the key challenges for their growth. In an effort to address this challenge, the SME Finance Forum enables knowledge-sharing and collaboration among key stakeholders, including financialinstitutions, development agencies, policy makers and researchers. It is part of the Global Partnership for Financial Inclusion (GPFI), an inclusive platform for all G-20 member countries, interested non-G20 members and other relevant stakeholders to advance the financial inclusion agenda.
Check out the new website at www.smefinanceforum.org
