In addition to traditional loans, leasing should be considered as a strategic tool to finance micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs).  Although it is a well-known instrument for financing the acquisition of all types of equipment in countries around the world, in emerging markets, it is generally more accessible to larger companies than to MSMEs.  This paper lays out a number of strategies and recommendations that leasing companies and other investors should follow in order to implement policies and procedures conducive to growing access to finance for MSMEs by means of leasing.

This publication will cover key aspects of developing a leasing business, including marketing, design, risk approaches, processes, repossession, and others.
