Vietnamese SMEs have been highly conducive to the country’s socio-economic development, having contributed to over 40% of GDP, as well as employing over 50% of the workforce. Despite accounting for 98% of the country’s enterprises, SMEs’ performance is still constrained by limited access to finance, technology, and suitably-qualified workers, as well as by limited penetration into global value chains. SIFEM’s investment will not only provide stable and long-term financing to Vietnamese SMEs facing funding challenges, but will also thereby support significant job creation.
