Introduction of SMID Bank

Incorporated as a public limited company under the auspices of the Ministry of Industry, the Small & Medium Industrial Development Bank (SMID Bank) started its operations on February 15, 1996 as semi government bank. In 2015, the bank has been reformed as an independent bank fully managed by Board of Directors chosen by shareholders. The main objective of establishing the bank is to provide financial and technical assistance to SMEs in the country.


As the only bank in the country focused on SME, the bank endeavors to finance particularly the production sector. With the coordinated initiative of the Ministries of Industry and Finance, the bank has had the privilege of a credit line from the state-owned Myanmar Economic Bank (MEB). The bank offers subsidized SME loans with very reasonable interest rates to its customers to support the development goals of creating job opportunities and poverty alleviation.


SMEs are the backbone of the economy and play a vital role for the development of the country. However, SMEs themselves have major challenges such as lack of access to finance, market information, modern technology, technical assistance and others. Therefore, SMID Bank considers that financial support is merely a single dimension for SME development and needs to extend technical assistance.


In Myanmar, GIZ, which supports the German Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development, is implementing the projects to extend technical assistance in the following sectors:


1) Financial Sector Development (FSD)
2) Private Sector Development (PSD)
3) Vocational Training Development (VTD)
 

With the support of the German Government, GIZ has proposed to local banks to cooperate in technical assistance. SMID Bank had been selected as one of the pilot banks and GIZ and those banks signed an MOU in January 2014. The term is from April 2014 to September 2015. According to the MOU, a long term international technical expert resides at SMID Bank supported by short term experts. Observing banking practices, meeting with customers, introduction of new institutional settings and various trainings to understand good international banking practices are being implemented by those experts.

On the other hand, SMID Bank is a Financial Institution and works very closely with its customers from the private sector. Additionally, SMID Bank always tries to offer good services to its customers and understands that capacity building significantly contributes to the development of every sector. For these reasons, SMID Bank plans to conduct training courses to its valued customers to share the know-how recently acquired from GIZ. Through its cooperation with GIZ and its customers, SMID Bank would like to pave the way for win-win solutions for all parties involved.

SMID Bank feels committed to the responsible finance concept. As such, the bank


- selects its borrowers in a transparent credit selection process
- makes adequate assessment of clients' repayment capabilities,
- measures social performance and
- provides respective trainings to its customers and staff members.
