Small and Small Enterprise Development Agency

 About SMEPS:

 The Small and Micro Enterprise Service (SMEPS) was first established in Yemen in 2005. The Small and Micro Enterprise Promotion Service (SMEPS) is subsidiary of the Social Fund for Development in Yemen (SFD). SMEPS is working in the economic development specialized in the private sector development through three main components:

 a) The value chain development

 b) The business development services

 c) The entrepreneurship enhancement

 

SMEPS In conflict / Build Resilience:

 SMEPS exists to create more jobs, expanding their beneficiaries and focuses mainly on developmental projects. It aims to achieve its goals by pursuing “creative strategies for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) of diversity and growth through the market-oriented approach”. In keeping with this approach, SMEPS’ interventions seek to build and facilitate the economic and technical capacities of market-driven private-sector parties including the MSMEs themselves, rather than acting as a significant direct service-provider to MSMEs.

In conflict, bridging development and humanitarian projects together is the most useful and sustainable approach that Yemen needs. SMEPS is pushing for this nexus and it is promoting it with the local partners, and the international donors’ community as well. We made an advocacy to the concept of working in development and humanitarian projects hand in hand, and it has proved to be effectively working on the ground.

In the global sustainable development goals UN stated, SMEPS is working in the SDG 2 which is: End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture

 

SMEPS is working on 2.3, and 2.4 which states:

2.3 by 2030 double the agricultural productivity and the incomes of small-scale food producers, particularly women, indigenous peoples, family farmers, pastoralists and fishers, including through secure and equal access to land, other productive resources and inputs, knowledge, financial services, markets, and opportunities for value addition and non-farm employment

2.4 by 2030 ensure sustainable food production systems and implement resilient agricultural practices that increase productivity and production, that help maintain ecosystems, that strengthen capacity for adaptation to climate change, extreme weather, drought, flooding and other disasters, and that progressively improve land and soil quality.

 

Our slogan is “Creativity & Diversification”

We also believe in Honesty, dynamisms and creativity as the key characteristics for any SMEPSer.
