Credit Guarantee Schemes - all over the globe - and here in DC

This page in:

From this week's Partial Credit Guarantee Conference, we learned that credit guarantees have become the direct intervention mechanism of choice of SME credit activists. Almost all of the OECD countries have them, as well as many developing countries. Multilateral and bilateral donors support them throughout the developing world.

While government is heavily involved in funding and management of these schemes, loan assessment and recovery are mostly undertaken by the private sector, mostly by the lenders - and perhaps for the better, as schemes where the government is in charge of choosing borrowers and recovering loans have typically higher loan losses.
