The significance of informal finance for MSEs
This webinar was convened by CGAP on 6 December 2022.
Micro and Small Enterprises (MSEs) derive value from informal financial services despite the existence of formal and tech enabled financial services. MSEs also have a variety of motivations and journeys, differing financial and non-financial needs, and attitudes toward finance.
Anzetse Were joins a panel to discuss the credit needs, incentives and factors that inform the uptake and use of formal and informal financial services by MSEs.
