Financing Sources for New and Growing Manufacturers

New and growing suppliers, in particular those operating in marginalised geographies, require improved financing for product development and operations.  With access to financing, manufacturers can expand capacity, lower pricing and generate improved commercial terms and performance to better meet the needs of vulnerable communities supported by UNICEF and partners.

While UNICEF does not finance suppliers’ operations, UNICEF below provides a database of financing options and sources, many of which target supporting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with the aim of generating both a financial and "social impact" return.
