Project Description

According to FMO website, Five-Star is one of the few financial institutions in India that fully focuses on small enterprises. The facility will support the growth of the financial institution and the strengthening of its long term funding profile. It will help it grow to reach 10,000 clients by 2018. The target segment of Five-star is exclusively small-business owners (tea shops, vegetable vendors, small workshop owners etc.), very much in line with MASSIF and FMO mandate; additionality of our funding is expected to be very high. It will also provide support with its management systems, its risk management framework and its client protection practices.
