Providing access to finance to Zambia’s ‘missing middle’

Zambia

The deposit-taking microfinance institution (MFI) Entrepreneurs Financial Centre Zambia (EFC Zambia) offers a range of financial services targeting micro-, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in the 'missing middle' that is not served by conventional financial institutions.

The MFI is rooted in a 1996 CARE development project and received a license to take deposits in 2009. It has been part of the international network of Entrepreneurs Financial Centres (EFC) since 2011.

Entrepreneurs Financial Centre Zambia has been an Oikocredit partner since 2017.
