Ethiopia: REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL, CERTIFICATION OF TECHNICAL SERVICE PROVIDERS FOR MICROFINANCE INSTITUTIONS

Organization: DAI Global
Country: Ethiopia
Closing date: 15 Feb 2018

REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL, CERTIFICATION OF TECHNICAL SERVICE PROVIDERS FOR MICROFINANCE INSTITUTIONS

Intervention Code: FIN 25

Sector: SME Finance

Fund used: WEDP Extension

Responsible Person: SMEF Intervention Manager

Date of RFP: December, 2017

Application Deadline: 15 February 2018

1. BACKGROUND

Background to the assignment

There are 35 MFIs operating in Ethiopia, serving over 15 million clients. Due to their focus on clients at the Base of the Pyramid and the financially excluded, the MFIs have the potential to make significant contributions towards the national economic growth and financial inclusion. However, various assessments indicate the MFIs face major capacity gaps, in areas of governance, deposit mobilization, product innovation, IT/MIS, amongst others. There are several NGO/Donor funded projects, supporting MFIs to meet their capacity building needs, but, it is not enough nor sustainable.It is rare for the MFIs to seek and procure Technical Service Providers (TSPs) to address their capacity needs, mainly due to limited availability and access to quality and affordable technical assistance services. There are few TSPs, but they do not have standardized training materials and lack the skills required to deliver effective technical assistance.

The Association of Ethiopian Microfinance Institutions (AEMFI) is the national network in charge of the development of the microfinance sector, but lacks capacity to address such gaps. In addition, there is also a lack of quality standard for technical service and related TSPs certification programme in the country.

Therefore, this intervention is led by AEMFI with support from Enterprise Partners (EP) to create pool of certified local TSPs to offer quality and affordable technical assistances to MFIs. AEMFI in partnership with an internationally recognized certifying organization will operate the programme to create the pool of technical service providers and maintain the training curriculum. Certification program targeted individual consultants & those aspiring to be a consultant/trainer of MFIs, and MFI practitioners who have interest & potential to engage in technical services provision business for the microfinance industry.

Association of Ethiopian Microfinance Institutions

AEMFI is a non-profit membership organization registered by the Ministry of Justice of the Federal Government of Ethiopia (1999). Its objectives are to serve as a platform for knowledge and information sharing, represent the Ethiopian microfinance institutions in national and international platforms and build the capacity of its members. Regionally, AEMFI is the one of the strongest of the country level networks in Africa. AEMFI has established training and research centre, Ethiopian Inclusive Finance Training and Research Institute (EIFTRI) to fill the capacity gaps of MFIs focusing on trainings and research works that would help microfinance industry to grow and spread inclusive finance. For more information visit: http://www.aemfi-ethiopia.org/

Enterprise Partners

EP is a 7-year (2013-2020) wealth creation programme funded by DFID with the aim to support the private sector and Ethiopia’s economic growth which is inclusive of women and the environment. By applying the Making Markets Work for the Poor (M4P) approach for sustainable results, it aims to facilitate market development in order to spur innovation and investment that creates jobs and increases incomes for the poor. It does so with a combination of technical assistance and market facilitation in resolving market failures. EP is being implemented in a consortium led by DAI Europe, and includes First Consult, Enclude and ITAD. For more information visit http:// www.enterprisepartners.org /.
