Financing Programs for SMEs

The growing number and significant role of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in spurring national economic growth prompted the compilation and pulication of this handbook on Financing Programs for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises.

The implementation of micro financing and SME lending programs by various institutions is generally recognized as an essential tool in stimulating entrepreneurial activities. Through this compendium, the Bureau of Small and Medium Enterprise Development (BSMED) aims to increase the Filipino entrepreneur’s awareness on sources of funding available from government and private sector institutions for his business, and encourage him to access these facilities based on the capabilities of his enterprise. This menu of financial services will hopefully develop and strengthen the ability of MSMEs to better manage their operational activities and possibly embolden them to cater to areas beyond their traditional markets.

This compilation is an initiative of BSMED under the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) with funding support from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
