The Afaq partnership program recognizes the important role SMEs play in the Kingdom’s economy and the difficulty these enterprises may face in accessing the required financial support so SIDF provides them with a financing program to ensure growth.

Whereas Monsha’at’s Tomoh initiative aims to increase SME contribution to the country’s GDP and improve the performance of SMEs, an initiative which is in line with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 which aims to enhance the quality of life for residents and citizens in Saudi Arabia and to diversify the economy.

SIDF and Monsha’at also agreed to jointly spread awareness of the programs and products specified in the agreement and to explore further opportunities for cooperation in the future, according to SPA.
