Roadmap to Funding for Financial Institutions

A practical guide to understanding the requirements to secure funding

Financial institutions in frontier markets connect individuals in their community to the financial services they need to build a brighter future and protect themselves from risk. Yet, many financial institutions lack access to the capital that their business needs to grow and serve more individuals. There is a great deal of competition for a limited pool of available capital, and the process of applying for funding from an MIV can be complex.

This Roadmap to Funding breaks down the challenges that financial institutions may face in their quest to access capital. It explains step-by-step the requirements financial institutions must meet to secure funding, and aims to help financial institutions understand which legal, technical, financial, social and operational aspects of their business a funder will evaluate when it considers providing capital for growth.
