Support Areas

The overarching reason of the Technical Assistance Facility of the SANAD Fund for MSME for being is to tailor technical assistance to the specific needs of SANAD’s partner institutions. Close collaboration during the project development phase, including joint selection of consultants, is key to ensuring ownership – and a prerequisite for project success. The TAF provides hands-on support in the following areas:
  • Market and feasibility studies
  • Strategy design and business model development
  • Development of micro, small and medium enterprise finance operating models
  • Product development
  • Lending methodology
  • Middle management organization
  • Delinquency and credit risk management
  • Financial management and asset liability management
  • Institutional transformation

The TAF also conducts research and development projects that provide valuable insights for guiding the Fund’s investment strategy – as well as helping to maximize development impact.
