Round 2 (a) - Somaliland
IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING WORLD BANK FUNDED
SOMALI BUSINESS CATALYTIC FUND
The World Bank funded Somali Business Catalytic Fund program implemented by DAI Inc. placed an advert on local Somaliland newspapers on the 29th of October 2017 to announce the second round of grant funds available to the business community thereby inviting would be applicants to submit concept notes for evaluation.
Funding was made available for two sectors:
1. Women’s Only Businesses – Small Grants ($10,000-$50,000)
2. Supporting the Private Sector to Create Greater Resilience in Response to Climate Change – Large Grants ($50,001-$150,000)
Regrettably, the World Bank has now taken the decision to CANCEL this round for technical reasons, and will not be making funds available for the program. This means applications for grants will no longer be accepted, and if you have recently already submitted an application it will NOT be reviewed or evaluated.
The Somali Business Catalytic Fund apologies for any inconvenience caused.
