      Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are important contributors to job creation and economic growth in emerging markets. However, access to financing is a key constraint to SME growth, as about half of them don't have access to formal credit. In Mongolia, Golomt Bank serves nearly 80% of the corporate market. They were the first commercial bank in the country to issue small business loans. Golomt Bank accelerated the development of mobile banking in Mongolia by introducing smart banking services in the local financial sector.

      Financial support enables Mongolian entrepreneurs to increase their professional activity, resulting in job creation and improved living conditions.

      Golomt Bank is a member of the United Nations Environmental Program Finance Initiative (UNEP FI). This partnership helps create a financial sector that serves people and the planet and mobilizes private sector finance for sustainable development.
