The SwitchMed programme is facing the big challenge of fostering access to finance for very small sized start-ups and green SMEs like the Switchers. There is indeed a deep interest in the areas of green economy and green entrepreneurship, as these sectors have a relatively high growth potential in the MENA region, particularly in the countries where the Green Impact Investing Network (GIIN) is operating. Despite this, almost no financing instruments are available in the countries and this emphasizes the need for cooperation between financing institutions to boost access to finance for green entrepreneurs. more
