Since 2016, we’ve been implementing our mission to build a global membership to support better SME financing, and since then, we’ve established a network with over 190 active members, who operate in over 190 countries sharing the common purpose of helping under-served enterprises. We are delighted to welcome Tam Faktoring to further grow our mission.” said Matthew Gamser, CEO of the SME Finance Forum.
