„MarketMakers“ Bosnia and Herzegovina

Interventions of Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) in the youth employment field have so far been targeting the supply side of the labour market in Bosnia and Herzegovina (increasing the employability of young people) and the matching between demand and supply (mainly by strengthening the capacities of the public employment services). It is clear however that youth unemployment in BiH can only be effectively and sustainably combated if the necessary preconditions for increasing the number of new vacancies are created. The main aim of the “Making Markets Work for the New Generation” (MMW4NG) program is to promote the creation of decent job opportunities for young women and men in BiH. As of 2013 NERDA is a cofacilitator in the iimplementation of a Market Development Initiative for food production and processing sector in North-East BiH.

Regional Guarantee Fund

The findings generated through economic analysis of the SME Sector indicated that enterprises are faced with serious obstacles is access to affordable medium and long term finance. Therefore NERDA established a Guarantee Fund for Small and Medium Enterprises, which became operational in March 2008. In partnership with Volksbank BH, Tuzla Development Association NERDA ensured a very attractive interest rate for SMEs which is 6.99 %, while the multiplying factor for the deposited funds is 3.0. The total deposited funds are in the amount of 848.250 KM, while the available potential amounts to 2.544.750 KM. For more information on Guarantee Fund please contact:
