Communities catalyze development

While SGBs are the engines of local economies, accessing financing is particularly challenging for many of them, such as early stage ventures and businesses with moderate growth prospects, that are stuck squarely in the “missing middle” of enterprise finance: They are too big for microfinance, too small or risky for traditional bank lending, and lack the growth, return, and exit potential sought by venture capitalists.

This lack of risk capital to the missing middle substantially diminishes the growth potential of these enterprises, generating profound negative impact on employment, the development of a middle class, and tax revenues that are essential to a country’s development. A vibrant middle economy is a key element in job creation, on the job training, poverty reduction, wealth creation, sustainable economic growth, and stability.
