SHARE THIS PAGE
Access to finance in the Kyrgyz Republic is growing and demonstrates improvement of financial inclusion of small and medium-sized enterprises.
We discuss state, regulative framework, and recent developments in leveraging access to finance for micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) in the Kyrgyz Republic through global value chain examples. Access to finance in the Kyrgyz Republic is growing and demonstrates improvement of financial inclusion of companies in the SME sector as well as the sector of individual entrepreneurs and peasant farmers. Four selected value chains in agriculture, industry and service sector demonstrate the gaps in the access to finance of the MSME entities in the value chains supply to export markets. Some practical recommendations are proposed, aiming to decrease financial gaps for the SME sector in building resilient global value chain supplies.
