Recognizing that financial services are a key contributor to broad-based economic growth, Chemonics works with financial institutions to increase the availability and affordability of financial services for micro-, small-, and medium-sized enterprises and underserved populations. We help financial institutions develop and improve micro-lending products, leasing, purchase order financing, mobile money, insurance, and savings products, and help them expand small and medium enterprises lending by utilizing U.S. International Development Finance Corporation guarantees. Chemonics also partners with host country government ministries, central banks, regulators, and other key institutions to develop appropriate financial sector policies and regulations as well as to establish capital markets, credit bureaus, and other key institutions that make up a country’s financial infrastructure.
