To promote systemic reform and ensure sustained economic growth, we work with the Central Bank and commercial banks on financial sector reforms in policy, procedures, and capacity-building to encourage commercial banks to expand the number of products on offer and increase their willingness and ability to lend to small and medium-sized borrowers.

In agriculture, we activate the value chain—from production to processing to transport to marketing—to link sources of credit, inputs, and markets to entrepreneurs and farmers of crops like bananas and coffee.

USAID economic growth programs complement the efforts of the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the European Commission to help build the capacity of Angola’s Ministry of Finance to manage the national budget in a more effective, open, and transparent manner.
