The International Trade Centre (https://www.intracen.org ) and Farwell Innovations, Nairobi (https://www.farwell-consultants.com ) developed the MSME Financing Gateway in response to demand from 1,000s of MSMEs, financing and business development support providers surveyed in 2020. The platform was developed, tested and launched with the financial support of the European Union-funded East African Community Market Access Upgrade Programme (MARKUP).
The East African Community EAC - Market Access Upgrade Programme (MARKUP) funded by the European Union (EU) has provided the financial support to develop, launch, test and cover the initial Internet-hosting costs of this platform.

The Agence de Développement du Burundi (ADBU) hosts the MSME Financing Gateway platform in Burundi in support of improving Burundi MSMEs access to affordable financing.
We thank the many individuals, organisations and enterprises across the region who have provided inputs to the design and development of the platform.
