Product Up-scaling Interventions

tThe ‘PRODUCT UP-SCALING WINDOW’ (PUW) co-funds the development, testing and launching of both client-oriented financial products and product distribution channels that meet the needs of low-income households, smallholders, and micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) with a particular focus on women and rural areas. The partner financial institution concerned will be assisted in overcoming prioritised constraints that have so far hampered it to up-scale its ‘pro-poor’ banking and/or insurance operations in a sustainable manner.
