Bridging the Gap

Our Projects

USAID Libya Economic Acceleration Program

Connexus is working with Chemonics International and Super Novae on the USAID-funded LEAP Activity, which works with vulnerable communities, victims of conflict, private enterprises, and business development service (BDS) providers to cultivate community cohesion and enhance private sector competitiveness. Connexus’ Access to Finance Expert works with Libyan financial institutions (FIs) to determine their capacity and willingness to lend to micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) and makes actionable recommendations for what is needed to expand their outreach and service provision to MSMEs. Connexus is also identifying FIs interested in partnering with LEAP to build their capacity to help MSMEs grow their business and linking them with BDS providers. Through these interventions, Connexus is supporting LEAP’s focus on partnering with local businesses and organizations to increase economic opportunity, ultimately supporting locally driven peace and reconciliation efforts in Libya’s south.
