Overview

The Haiti Integrated Financing for Value Chain Enterprise (HIFIVE) project builds on USAID’s longstanding support to the financial sector to increase the supply of financial products and services to underserved households and micro-, small-, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) in USAID-supported areas and value chains. On a smaller scale, HIFIVE had also offered business development services to MSMEs in U.S. Government-supported value chains to increase their capacity to access credit.
 

OVERVIEW

Through the Development Credit Authority (DCA), USAID provides partial credit guarantees to mobilize local financing in developing countries. Guarantee agreements encourage private lenders to extend financing to underserved borrowers in new sectors and regions. USAID/Afghanistan has two DCA activities: a $13.75 million Portable Guarantee for three microfinance institutions (MFIs), FINCA Afghanistan, OXUS Afghanistan, and First MicroFinance Bank Afghanistan, and a $10.3 million Loan Portfolio Guarantee with Afghanistan International Bank (AIB).
