Georgia Analytical Foundations Assessment in the Agriculture (Rural Productivity) and Financial Sectors
TMG conducted an assessment that built upon a series of USAID-funded analyses of various aspects of Georgia’s financial services sector. To conduct this analytical foundations assessment, TMG assembled and fielded a team of four international Expatriates and four Georgian Experts. Its primary focus was middle-market enterprises and micro-financing activities of the Georgian commercial banks and MFI’s. TMG also determined the extent to which the financial needs of these entities are being met by the financial system. This assessment developed approaches and made recommendations as to how the existing gap between the demand and supply sides of available financial services primarily for middle market enterprises might be reduced. The primary purpose of the Assessment was to provide the analytical foundations necessary to inform the Mission’s Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS).
