Access to finance has been a chronic issue for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in many areas around the world, but the revenue capital approach is breaking barriers from Tunisia to South Africa and paving a pathway to progress for SMEs who don’t fit the bill for traditional banking and venture capital.

On April 25, Microlinks, in partnership with the USAID Asia and Economic Growth Best Practices (AMEG) project, explored key features of the revenue capital approach. Presenters discussed why it works and how it can be expanded to financially empower SMEs around the world. Participants got to hear lessons learned and best practices from Business Partners working throughout Sub-Saharan Africa and the Tunisian-American Enterprise Fund.
