Member OPIC Continues Investment in Myanmar
Member OPIC continues to make an impact in closing the SME finance Gap where it's needed most. In this letter to the editor for Myanmar Times, Scot Marciel, U.S. ambassador to Myanmar speaks on how OPIC continues to invest in Myanmar. Marciel says, "Two years ago OPIC committed financing to its first microfinance project in Myanmar, to help entrepreneurs and small business owners obtain loans to start and grow businesses. Despite Myanmar’s strong recent growth, the portion of adults who have access to financial services remains among the lowest in the region. When more of these entrepreneurs and small businesses can borrow, they can increase their revenues, hire more workers and invest in their families and their communities."
