MAP MSME Malawi Roadmap 2019 Report

MAP MSME Malawi roadmap

The Malawi Making Access Possible (MAP) for Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) Development Roadmap lays out a vision and implementation framework for the development of the SME sector in Malawi. This Roadmap only focuses on SMEs, and excludes micro-enterprises. This was in recognition that, even though micro enterprises are critical as a major contributor towards livelihoods, they are unlikely to bring about meaningful impact in economic and employment growth. The diagnostic assessment was conducted in 2019, evaluating the country’s context, regulatory and policy frameworks; supply-side considerations, FinMark Trust’s FinScope Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) Malawi Survey 2019 and qualitative demand-side research.
