ADB uses credit enhancement products to promote private sector financing for lending to micro and small business owners. In India, it works with banks to provide local currency financing to microfinance institutions.
As a catalyst for private investments, ADB provides direct financial assistance to private sector projects. While ADB’s participation is usually limited, it leverages a large amount of funds from commercial sources to finance these projects. Projects must also have clear development impacts and/or demonstration effects that go beyond the benefits captured in the financial rate of return.
