Set up in 2006 and managed on behalf of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, MASSIF is FMO’s financial inclusion fund. MASSIF enhances financial inclusion for micro-entrepreneurs and small- and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) that are disproportionately affected by a lack of access to financial services. The Fund supports intermediaries that reach out to MSMEs in fragile and low-income countries, MSMEs in rural areas and those dependent on agriculture, women-and-youth owned MSMEs, and intermediaries providing access to productive goods and services for underserved individuals in the poorest social-economic segments.
