Project Description Atikus is a socially focused enterprise which understands that access to capital can help stimulate small enterprise activity and improve household welfare in developing and emerging markets. Atikus is therefore working towards enabling MSME credit lenders to meet the demand for capital by providing them with insurance and technology-based risk solutions. Their work is specifically focused on increasing the proportion of loans granted to women and youth, as well as to other underserved demographics, thereby minimizing the financial limitations that challenge their development.
