Kyrgyzstan Women in Business

We provided an assessment of the SME sector in Kyrgyzstan.

The objective of this study was to provide an assessment of the SME sector in Kyrgyzstan, through a careful analysis of the latest trends in development of the Kyrgyz business environment and the legal framework relevant for SMEs in general and women-led SMEs in particular.  The assessment provided the EBRD with a detailed overview and description of the key constraints faced by each sub-segment of SMEs and women-led SMEs in accessing finance, while also including recommendations on possible measures to address the supply- and demand-side challenges they meet in accessing finance and acquiring the knowledge and skills necessary to their successful development.
