The project is supporting the development of secured transactions regime and collateral registry. Key activities will include stakeholders' coordination, capacity building and awareness raising to align the regulatory framework with best practice, ensure delivery of a modern collateral registry system, and facilitate early adoption by lenders.
Expected Development Impact
The objective of the project is to increase the reach of credit to individual consumers as well as micro, small and medium enterprises, especially women entrepreneurs who are adversely affected by the traditional lending practice that favors physical assets over movable assets as collateral for loans. It will also boost the adoption of the secured transactions in movable asset regime and promote financial system deepening and inclusion.
