Access-to-finance model for Mozambique
A consortium of Genesis and the International Capital Corporation (Mozambique) was awarded the contract to design an access-to-finance programme in Mozambique. This was to be based on the model of the Financial Sector Deepening Trusts that DFID has established in various African countries including Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.
The consortium produced a detailed concept note exploring the access-to-finance landscape and opportunities in Mozambique. It also developed a focused business plan for the programme, which described recommended interventions and included an investment appraisal (a valuation of the programme's costs and benefits), a logical framework and a risk assessment that took political and economic considerations into account.
