Abstract

We conducted an impact evaluation to assess the effectiveness of the main types of programs through which IDB has supported small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). It does not evaluate Bank projects directly or compare executing agencies, models of interventions, or financial instruments, but rather examines the effectiveness of Bank-supported approaches implemented by Brazilian institutions. Focusing only on the manufacturing sector, the evaluation examines (i) how various SME interventions and various combinations of these interventions affect variables of interest such as employment, real wages, exports, and patent and trademark registration in Brazil; and (ii) to what extent the duration and sequencing of SME interventions influence their impact on these variables of interest. The overarching objective of this exercise is to provide insight for future strategic decisions about the targeting of Bank support to SMEs.
