This study analyses the supply and demand of financial services for micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) in Samoa, as well as the policy and regulatory frameworks in place and/or needed to better enable MSMEs to access and use financial services. The study also undertakes a gender lens analysis to determine the gender-specific constraints faced by Samoan entrepreneurs to access and use financial services. The main recommendations of the study are (i) an integrated training program for MSMEs, (ii) a collateral shortfall partial guarantee scheme; and (iii) technical assistance to the Development Bank of Samoa.
