Why is ProFound rural finance important to develop your business?

Rural Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) are the motor of emerging markets. However, many SMEs face difficulties gaining access to financial services, such as credit, trade finance and insurance from conventional banks. As a result, they struggle to find the right financial solution for their business plan. ProFound experts design, connect and build demand-driven solutions for SMEs local market realities, specific client circumstances and investor expectations.
