SME Banking Knowledge Guide

Published by IFC’s Global SME Banking Program, the Knowledge Guide outlines leading practices, market trends, opportunities and challenges, and success factors for profitable SME Banking operations.

The SME Banking Knowledge Guide draws widely from existing research and literature and from numerous primary interviews with SME banking experts and practitioners worldwide. It is primarily a technical publication intended for bank directors, managers, and staff in developing economies, who see the untapped opportunity in their local markets but still have not reached the optimal way to approach the SME segment. It is also a useful to for policy makers and other financial sector stakeholders who seek to better understand the essentials of SME finance.

Available in Arabic, English, French, Russian, Spanish and Vietnamese.
