Now reading: MSME resilience in Ghana

Micro- Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs)


Given the critical role that micro, small and medium-sized businesses (MSMEs) play in emerging markets, interventions designed to support them need to be effective in unlocking innovation, employment and economic growth. Cenfri is exploring several areas of MSME-related work including:

  • Nuanced MSME segmentation
  • Digital transformation of MSMEs
  • Systems mapping (understanding key value-chains as well as the drivers and constraints in the ecosystem)
  • Designing interventions and rethinking insurance to meet MSME needs and better manage the risks they face
  • Technical assistance to the private sector
