Colombia - Fifth Small and Medium Scale Enterprise Project (English)

The Fifth Small and Medium Scale Enterprise Project will accelerate the growth rates of value added and employment creation of small and medium scale enterprises (SME), this will be accomplished through : (i) making modest changes in public policy and institutional mechanisms influencing SME access to longer-term credit; (ii) engaging Colombia's commercial and development Banks as SME loan intermediaries and the resources of these entities for this purpose; (iii) simplifying Bank loan processing and increasing technical cooperation to SME's; and (iv) preparing studies and recommendations during project implementation on policies influencing capital intensity, business establishments and operations, to help promote a neutral policy environment for SME development.
