To create investment in Zambia by building the capacity of micro, small and medium sized enterprises. The programme will aim to systematically transform the finance and investment environment for small and medium sized enterprises in Zambia, by helping companies with potential to grow and become the engine of job creation in the economy. The programme will create jobs at scale, including for women, disabled people, and rural communities with high levels of poverty. Small and medium sized enterprises supported by the programme will help to improve nutrition outcomes and improve climate resilience of smallholder farmers. It is expected that at least 5 new small and medium enterprise finance vehicles enter the Zambian market; At least 1000 small and medium sized enterprises are supported by the programme and demonstrate growth in their business; At least 50% of businesses supported should be owned or managed by women and at least 50% of the 30,000 jobs created, should be for women.
