In Tajikistan, where tax administration is one of the most challenging regulatory areas for entrepreneurs, the government has taken a big step forward with a new IFC-backed approach to tax auditing.
IFC and the Consultative Group to Assist the Poor, CGAP, helped Tajikistan adopt an improved law on microfinance organizations, increasing access to finance for microentrepreneurs and the general population.
Microfinance has been a lifeline for many people living at the base of the pyramid. A new set of films developed by IFC in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Tajikistan, and the Kyrgyz Republic shows
