Main Topics


​​SDCs financial sector development covers the following main topics:

  • Rural Finance: Despite the major role they play in economic development, rural regions suffer from a massive deficit of financial services.
  • Micro Finance: Financial services for poor sections of the population and micro enterprises who have no regular access to the services offered by formal financial institutions.
  • Small Enterprise Finance: Small enterprises are of major importance in achieving broad-based development and employment. Yet often such enterprises have no access to services tailored to their needs.
  • Micro-insurance: People in developing and transition countries tend to be exposed to a wide range of risks, such as disease, harvest failure, loss of income and theft, yet they have virtually no formal insurance protection.
  • Social Performance Mainstreaming: Are financial service provider’s walking their talk of their stated social mission? SDC has contributed significantly on social performance measurement and disclosure to improve microfinance standards.
