Sudan Microfinance Development Facility

The Sudanese Microfinance Development Facility is owned by the Central Bank of Sudan and the Ministry of Finance and National Economy. It has been established by the Donors’ Fund MDTF and the Central Bank of Sudan with a capital of 20 million dollars, and announced its establishment on the first week of October 2008. The goals behind establishing this facility are:

Developing collaboration and coordination on the demand side (commercial banks and Microfinance banks) through opening channels to provide services appropriate to the nature of the beneficiaries thereby advancing the level of the operative efficiency and working to reduce cost and expand outreach.

Offering wholesale financing and financial contributions to banking and non- banking institutions working in Microfinance in order to create an enabling and inviting infrastructure for the banking sector, the private sector investors and the donors.

In this respect and according to the annual plan of the Microfinance Unit of the Central Bank of Sudan for the year 2010, the unit introduced a program specified for the utilization of these resources through the following:

Offering financial and institutional assistance to enable banks to partially restructure by opening specialized outlets according to the policies and guidelines of the Central Bank of Sudan, whether by opening specialized branches or forming companies associated to the banks for the purpose of offering Microfinance services.

Offering wholesale finance for the branches and specialized companies according to the predetermined standards and conditions, in addition to the financial contributions and funds offered to the Microfinance specialized companies established by the banks under the licensing conditions of the Microfinance banks.

Adopting the UNDP’s Private Sector Development Strategy for Sudan,The Central Bank of Sudan and the United Nations Development Program joined in partnership in the Private Sector Development Project, the project approach is building on both of UNDPs global corporate advantage regarding Private Sector Development and its specific long-term experience in economic development programs in Sudan in its effort to strengthen the impact of conducive private-sector-related government priorities, policies and programs by supporting government capacity development for creating inclusive markets in Sudan.

Close coordination and partnership to ensure synergies and avoid duplication and creating synergies through complementary support. In view of this objective, every proposed project under this program is being designed upon request and in close collaboration with the government as a tripartite partnership with a national lead institution and at least one other relevant UN-agency as well as other local and international partners. This synergetic approach is intended to strengthen UNDP’s effectiveness in coordinating and fostering collaboration on private sector development programming in Sudan.

The design of this programme is based on the studies undertaken within UNDP’s “Preparatory Support to Microfinance and Micro-Business Development Programming in Sudan”.

Microfinance Policy, Regulatory Framework & National Coordination

UNDP in this regard, focuses on capacity development of microfinance providers and clients to adopt best practice microfinance-services and to advocate for enabling microfinance policy and regulatory environment on five different levels:

  • Branchless banking for the poor

  • Pro-Poor Value Chain Integration
