Extractions: Egypt Keywords: Economic Development Poverty Eradication The Alexandria Business Association (ABA) is non-profit foundation that uses an innovative approach to supply small and micro enterprises (SMEs) with credit and to support their growth. In 1988, USAID endowed ABA with a collateral fund of $8,000,000 against which the foundation could borrow Egyptian pounds to on-lend to clients, and provided it with a grant of $2,000,000 for operating expenses until the foundation could cover its own costs loan recovery. The ABA has tailored its methodology to best meet the special needs of SMEs: the foundation offers small loan sizes with few prerequisites, flexible loan repayment conditions with short loan terms, and hands-on technical assistance to clients. In response to this situation, USAID sought to launch an SME project that would provide credit and business management assistance to SMEs. The Alexandria Business Association (ABA), a private non-profit NGO, run by a Board of Directors from the local business community, volunteered to act as the institution anchor for the program. ABA was an ideal location to initiate the SME program because, as an organization that began as a committee to promote business interests and then expanded to take on community service projects, it combined business know-how with institutional commitment to community development.
