The Sakchyam Access to Finance for the Poor Programme (Sakchyam) is an initiative funded by UKaid as part of an agreement between the Governments of Nepal and the UK. It is implemented by Louis Berger for the Department for International Development (DFID Nepal) in partnership with local and international institutions. The 5-year programme, valued at £20.5 million, is working with the public and private sectors to leverage access and facilitate financial sector development in Nepal for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and for poor people with a focus on Province No. 5, 6 & 7, and beyond.

To do so, the programme focuses on three main outputs:

1. Improved SME Finance as banks and other financial institutions provide more and better products and services to these enterprises.

2. Strengthened capacity of microfinance financial institutions (MFIs) as well as other formal and semi-formal financial institutions, to provide services in selected districts

3. Improved financial capability of enterprises and households in priority districts

It has also established the Sakchyam Challenge Fund that attracts and leverages private sector proposals that encourage innovative, new products and services aimed at poor people and communities, which deliver socio-economic benefits to a large number of poor people, but are still commercially-sustainable.

The Programme is looking to fill following short term position:
