"Impact of Covid-19 on MSMEs in Central America and the Caribbean: Results from client surveys of microfinance institutions".

Microfinance sector study 

This study aims to analyse the impact of Covid-19 on micro, small and medium-sized enterprises, clients of the microfinance sector in Central America and the Dominican Republic, through a systematisation of the results found by microfinance institutions (MFIs) that have surveyed their clients to understand their conditions after the outbreak of the pandemic.

The current context presents a unique opportunity for MFIs and other actors operating in the microfinance sector to implement other digitally driven business models that incorporate new strategies, products, channels and other aspects to meet client demand.
