  • Prospecting Opportunities for Gender based Finance and Energy Eefficiency for MSMEs in India

    IFC commissioned MicroSave to sensitise the senior management team of banks, non-banking financial institutions and microfinance institutions in India, through a series of focussed workshops, about the opportunities, benefits and returns as well as challenges in expanding financing to the women-owned MSMEs and financing energy efficient technologies for SMEs in India. As pre-workshop requirements, we conducted desk-based research and a comprehensive diagnostic study of needs of women-owned MSMEs as well as for financing energy efficient technologies for MSMEs backed by feedback from relevant stakeholders and opinion leaders. We organised a workshop under the aegis of IFC on the issues of finance to present our analysis and develop a future roadmap for FIs in India that was attended by representatives from 16 banks.
