Short-term: Gender and Vulnerable Groups Advisor
Louis Berger
The Sakchyam Access to Finance Programme is an initiative funded with UKaid as part of a bilateral agreement between the Governments of Nepal and the UK. It is implemented by Louis Berger for the Department of International Development (DFID Nepal) in partnership with local and international institutions.

The 5-year programme 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 the rural poor with a focus on the Mid- and Far-Western Regions (MWDR and FWDR).

To do so, the programme is focusing on three main outputs:

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

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

Improved financial capability of enterprises and households in priority districts

As part of such, it has 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.
