      Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are important contributors to job creation and economic growth in emerging markets. However, access to financing is a key constraint to SME growth, as about half of them don't have access to formal credit. In Mongolia, Golomt Bank serves nearly 80% of the corporate market. They were the first commercial bank in the country to issue small business loans.
