Consulting in Development Finance

LANDT strongly believes that barriers to MSME access to finance can be overcome by collaboration between local and international actors. Backed by extensive experience, LANDT consults on projects to promote private sector development in challenging environments.

Evaluation of CGFs:

LANDT carries out extensive evaluation of a CGF’s performance to identify areas of improvement and develop and implement innovative solutions.

Feasibility Studies:

LANDT conducts studies to analyze a country and its MSME sector’s strengths and weaknesses in order to offer optimized methods to uplift the sector.

Conceptual Workshops:

LANDT participates in and organizes various workshops explaining the benefits and value of CGFs with consideration of the specific institutional interests and country context.


LANDT drives targeted fundraising efforts for existing and new CGFs as well as assisting CGFs to develop and implement their own fundraising strategies. 

“LANDT’s success is achieved by creating comprehensive structures with strong local presence, allowing LANDT to be at the heartbeat of the local MSME and financial sector. Being part of LANDT means to work in close exchange with my colleagues abroad and to share know-how with them; yet in a similar way, learn from them every day.“
