Cambodia is one of the poorest countries in the world and is listed as a Least Developed Country by the OECD. The Cambodian private sector consists primarily of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises which is why they play a crucial role in the development of the country's economy and employment situation.

The credit line to ACLEDA Bank Plc – the leading MSME-bank in Cambodia - is dedicated to the financing of local MSME and thereby contributes to strengthening the private sector as well as to securing and creating jobs.
