More at http://www.accion.org.    Project Summary   The GLAS team is  launching a project of digital empowerment in Central Asia, aiming to empower 400,000 micro and small enterprises (MSEs)[1]across Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan to adopt and use digital, business and financial solutions to increase their business returns and financial health.   In the past decade, MSEs in Central Asia have been able to take advantage of new opportunities as economic reforms have progressed. But the growth of MSEs has been constrained by low levels of both digitalization and financial inclusion. The project aims to accelerate the digitalization and financial inclusion of MSEs in Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. These two countries are important markets in Central Asia and will provide relevant lessons learned for other countries in the region. Accion is looking for a consultant to conduct market mapping and landscape analysis to identify and prioritize digital business and financial solutions in Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan that will improve MSEs’ efficiency, productivity and growth. Results from the mapping and analysis will inform the design of a digital platform and selection of potential business and financial solutions for the platform to help MSEs in these two markets to adopt and engage with digital tools.
