WHO WE WORK WITH
MEII bridges the credit gap by building relationships between our beneficiaries, partners, and funders.
Our programs work with entrepreneurs and small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), as defined by the World Bank, they have:
- Revenues up to $15 million (USD)
- Up to 300 employees
- Assets up to $15 million (USD)
These enterprises typically require between $5,000 –$1.5 million (USD) in financing.
Such businesses often require small capital injections to achieve transformative growth, and we focus on those businesses with the grit and determination to repay their loans/investors.
MEII partners with local financial intermediaries like banks, MFIs, and leasing companies; accounting firms; business development firms; and local investors.
Our funding comes from donors, development finance institutions (DFIs), and investors.
