Modest in size, but mighty in impact, micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSME) account for around two-thirds of global employment.
To promote the growth of MSMEs and to bring awareness to their valuable contribution to sustainable development goals (think ending poverty, promoting education and clean water), the United Nations’ General Assembly has declared June 27th as Global Micro, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises Day.
How big are MSMEs?
Why do we at SumUp care about them?
What does Global Micro, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises Day do to promote MSMEs?
Greater participation and growth within the international, regional and national markets.
Access to affordable microfinance and credit services.
Research, policy discussions and relevant workshops for MSMEs’ advancement.
Once policymakers and those in the private sector begin to grant MSMEs greater access to financial services and offer them support within public policies, MSMEs will be empowered to grow, and therefore, will fortify the local economy and further sustainable development on a larger scale.
This is why SumUp would like to honour our MSMEs and recognize the significant role you play in making our world a better place. Thank you!
