USAID’s Partnership for Development program aims to enhance the enabling environment for Kosovo’s private sector to expand employment opportunities for the country’s citizens. The program works in partnership with the government and other partners to support Kosovo’s vision for economic growth by strengthening its institutions.
USAID developed a loan portfolio guarantee to increase access to finance for Kosovo’s micro, small, and medium enterprises in agricultural value chains, as well as business startups in all sectors. These guarantees give banks the incentive to lend to business startups and agribusinesses, especially young entrepreneurs and farmers, who would otherwise find it difficult or impossible to obtain financing, in order to demonstrate the potential profitability in these sectors. USAID is also working to assist Kosovo’s financial sector to introduce new products tailored to meet the specific needs of start-ups and agricultural businesses.
EMPOWER Private Sector Support aims to increase competitiveness in growth-ready sectors and facilitate inclusive job creation, while also developing the capacity of local service providers to support the Kosovo private sector and respond to USAID contractor requirements.
