Description

Country
SME Competitiveness and Gender Inclusion Assessment The assessment team will meet SMEs including women-owned and women-led SMEs that represent diverse sectors and regions, as well as SME associations, and other stakeholders that drive SME competitive such as technical and vocational training centers (TVETs), large buyers in domestic and international markets, ecommerce platforms, and accelerators, among others. The field work should largely engage SMEs and women-owned SMEs directly to provide context and critical information about (gendered) business constraints and opportunities that will inform program design. Interviews should be held with high-level staff and/or management of these entities, including those who have decision making authority who can answer questions related to the businesses’ most pressing business constraints. These may relate to workforce capacity, management capacity, market linkages, response to COVID-19, and their strategy for continued growth in the future. Sri Lanka
Financing Landscape for SMEs Assessment The goals of the SME financing assessment are to:
i) Map the supply of financing available to SMEs including debt financing, equity, and risk-mitigating financial products
ii) Understand the constraints that financial service providers (including banks, non-bank financial institutions, and investors) confront when financing to SMEs and developing a pipeline of investable deals
iii) Determine training and technical assistance (TA) priorities among these FIs to inform Y1 capacity building efforts
iv) Conduct rapid review of FIs with DCA guarantees to determine the critical success factors and barriers to DCA utilization
v) Collect gender-disaggregated data to establish baseline information SME lending portfolio value estimates and repayment rates.
vi) Determine appetite of FIs for ‘blended finance’ incentive payment arrangements to mitigate risk and bump yield, including initial level of incentives required

On the demand-side, it will identify SMEs’ BAS requirements and willingness to pay. Findings will inform the initial provision of BAS support and the structuring of performance-based financing structures for BASPs to facilitate investments/financing to SMEs. Sri Lanka
