  • Expansion on number of outstanding guarantees by + 57.5%.

AECM member organizations continued to support access to MSME finance and the economies of the countries where they operate alongside their mission. The member organizations during 2019 were doing quite well, all together supporting MSMEs with a new guarantee volume EUR 38.8 billion, to close the year with a total amount of outstanding guarantee volume of EUR 110.7 billion of guarantees with more than 2.8 mill supported MSMEs by AECM members.
