Capacity Development


AGF’s Capacity Development Assistance is offered to Partner Financial Institutions to support them in order to mitigate their operational risks when on lending to SMEs and to help them increase their SME portfolio.

Improving SME business management skills is also critical to the success of the guarantee scheme and in this regard, AGF also provides capacity development assistance to SMEs themselves to build their capacity for easier access to finance. Support to SMEs is availed through Partner Financial Institutions and Business Development Service providers.
