Primary Objectives

The KCGF will work with banks, MFIs, NFBIs, donors, the Government of Kosovo, the Central Bank, and the MSME community to achieve the following objectives:

  • Increase lending to MSMEs in Kosovo from the local financial institutions;
  • Create jobs, increase local production and value added services, improve the trade balance, broaden the tax base, strengthen the social safety net, and reduce poverty;
  • Enhance opportunities for underserved economic sectors and populations including women, minorities, farmers, entrepreneurs, and youth;
  • Help unlock and mobilize the roughly 600 million Euros of excess liquidity at the banks to catalyze business growth and employment; and
  • Enable MFIs and NBFIs to reduce their risk and help make more micro and small businesses “bankable.”
