The World Bank
“World Bank contracted Business & Finance Consulting to carry out a gap analysis in Bangladesh and Pakistan in 2006. The main objective was to identify potential for increasing the access to finance of SMEs in local banks. We have been extremely satisfied with BFC’s work as their team is very competent, BFC combines serious hands-on project experience (i.e. they actually have helped banks/MFIs increase their outreach with tangible results), rigorous analytical skills and a very refreshing openness to trying new approaches, while not compromising on the key tenets of small business lending. It is the latter, I believe, that makes BFC so client oriented.
In conclusion, it has been a real pleasure to work with BFC and I would recommend them wholeheartedly.”
