USAID to grant US$ 6 million to boost Peruvian MSE competitiveness


The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) plans to grant six million dollars next year to boost competitiveness of Peruvian Micro and Small Enterprises (MSE), reported the agency’s director, Paul Weinsenfeld.

In the last three years, USAID through Mype Competitiva project, granted 11 million dollars to strengthen micro-enterprise’s competitiveness, meeting main goals under this process.

Weinsenfeld is working in the design of the next stage of the Mype Competitiva project, so that MSE can benefit from the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the United States.

The project could last between three and five years, but it all will depend on the budget that the US government approves.
