The Green Credit Handbook was published by Viet Nam SME Development Fund (SMEDF) in December 2019 as a result of the partnership between GGGI and SMEDF. The Handbook is SMEDF’s first guidelines on green and sustainability criteria for SMEs who wish to access the fund. The Handbook helps SMEs, especially women-led ones, to prepare their loan proposals for innovative and green businesses. These proposals will be prioritized for lending compared to BAU proposals.
The Handbook is part of a wider cooperation between GGGI and SMEDF on mobilizing green finance for SMEs and startups.
