Small and medium enterprises account for 90 percent of enterprises in the Arab world and up to 40 percent of jobs, yet still struggle to access funding. The joint World Bank–IFC Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise Facility for MENA supports access to finance for MSMES in MENA by working to improve the legal and regulatory framework for MSME financing, and building the capacity of MSMEs as well as that of financial intermediaries to spur private sector growth. Find out how their work is helping small entrepreneurs across the region in this film.
