This database lists information about organisations that offer financial and/or technical support for inclusive business and social enterprises in developing countries. It aims to help companies and entrepreneurs in inclusive business find initiatives that could provide the support they need.
The database has been developed by the Practitioner Hub, in partnership with Connect to Grow and the Asian Development Bank. The database currently focuses on organisations that offer services to businesses in East Africa - Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda - in Nigeria, and in South Asia - Bangladesh, Myanmar and Nepal. However, it includes global organisations with much wider reach as well. It includes descriptions of over 200 relevant organisations, the support they offer and a linklinks to further information.
The database does not include organisations offering microfinance. A comprehensive listing of these, sorted by country, can be viewed here.
If you don’t find what you’re looking for here, check the earlier excel of the Hub Technical and Financial support database that contains a more global listing of organisations, or browse our other useful links.
We recognise that this is not an exhaustive list and our aim is to add more organisations on a regular basis. We encourage and welcome your feedback and any suggestions of other organisations that could be included. We would also value feedback on the usefulness of this database to your work.
