It is an international best practice to involve private sector Business Development Service Providers in delivery of development support to Small & Medium Businesses. There is a gap when it comes to acquisition of services form the Business Development Service Providers (BDSPs) by the SMEs in Pakistan. Lack of scalability of the products and absence of any quality assurance mechanism for the BDSPs are the major issues.

This component will identify, strengthen and network the BDSP for enhancing usability of their services by the SME sector. Around 3,800 BDSPs will be facilitated to service SME market requirements under this project.
