The eighty six million United States Dollars five year project, commenced in 2020 to address financial constraints that Micro, Small and Medium sized Enterprises face as well as promoting entrepreneurship capabilities in Malawi.

Dr Mark Lungu, FInES project Manager said lack of capacity of financial institutions as well as inadequate credit intermediation has contributed to the low access to finance by Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises in the country.
