    Project Overview and Role:

  • CATALYZE is a $250 million 5 to 8-year program, designed to CATALAYZE $2 billion in private capital, especially to underfinanced social sectors (such as education) and higher risk countries (especially low-income and post-conflict countries) around the globe, complemented by a cross-cutting inclusion of gender-lens investing. CATALYZE will provide services to many missions and bureaus that “buy in” to tap the CATALYZE investment and pay-for-results project management expertise.

  • Our aim is for investors to explore and find commercially viable opportunities and approaches to creating jobs, developing sustainable social services, tightening and rationalizing supply chains, and advancing inclusive growth.

  • Launched in 2020, CATALYZE: Market Systems for Growth (MS4G) drives private enterprise expansion to contribute towards Ethiopia’s future economic growth and prosperity. MS4G intends to foster enterprise-driven growth, especially among private enterprises that have high growth potential and the capacity to catalyse job creation throughout market systems.

  • MS4G’s goal is to address systemic challenges, including building business development services capacity, creating a more conducive business environment, building the financial sector infrastructure and capability within private finance providers, and expanding the digital economy. MS4G catalyses private sector growth by improving access to finance and facilitating transactions through targeted interventions
    across market systems (demand, supply, and enabling environment).

  • Expanded access to finance will also drive change across the market system by increasing business revenue and necessitating job creation. The program is expected to operate through 2024.

  • For its second year of implementation, CATALYZE MS4G is exploring ways to expand its activities focused on the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), with a specific emphasis on mobilizing business development services (BDS) and capital for private WASH enterprises. As such, the Project seeks expertise advice to assess opportunities to engage the private sector WASH landscape, identify challenges facing WASH enterprises and support its activity and work plan design process.
