"Findings regarding Small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and SME support from recent IEG evaluations, independent evaluations by other MDBs, and relevant World Bank Group research"
Small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) play a substantial role in developing economies, generating employment and growth. As income levels increase, formal SMEs tend to comprise a larger share of the economy, while the micro and informal sectors recede. Economic growth creates opportunities often filled by SMEs entering or sometimes “graduating” from microenterprise status. This note synthesizes findings regarding Small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and SME support from recent IEG evaluations, independent evaluations by other MDBs, and relevant World Bank Group research. 
This Knowledge Note has Key Findings from the World Bank Publication titled World Bank Group Support for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). Read the full report HERE.
