TDB rolls out SME programme for women-led businesses in six African countries

The Eastern and Southern African Trade and Development Bank (TDB) is rolling out a credit programme in six African countries to support women-led export-oriented SMEs.

Among the first to benefit are Ethiopian businesses, following an agreement between TDB and Ethiopia’s Enat Bank.

TDB is rolling out to specialist financial institutions in its member countries. It launched its first facility in Zimbabwe in October 2018 and will be expanding it further in the coming months, starting with Burundi and Kenya, and then Zambia and Malawi. The bank has allocated US$3mn to pilot the programme over the next two years in these countries.
