The Kyrgyzstan Enterprise Competitiveness Project (ECP) is anticipated to accelerate broad-based and diversified economic growth in Kyrgyzstan through a comprehensive approach to entrepreneurship, business development, and enhancement of investment ecosystem. The ECP will work with companies across economic sectors in Kyrgyzstan such as agribusiness and agriculture, apparel, tourism, technology, and manufacturing, among others. It is a forward-thinking project which is designed for flexibility in response to learning and dynamism in the environment. This 5-year project is funded by USAID and is envisioned to start in 2018.
The Finance and Investment Director will report to the Chief of Party and will supervise the project’s efforts to leverage capital and expertise from investors and asset management firms that can evaluate, manage, and implement investment transactions with both impact (increased revenues and jobs) and financial return mandates. This includes working with firms, organizations, and individuals with the resources and expertise to: i) create and implement financial products tailored to SMEs, and ii) structure, capitalize, and manage an investment vehicle to finance SMEs.
