Arnold is the Lead MSME at Mastercard Foundation. Mastercard Foundation’s Young Africa Works Strategy focuses on tackling the youth employment challenge facing countries across Africa and in particular young women. This new strategy calls for innovative private sector solutions, among others, to address this challenge. Micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) are a major source of growth, innovation and job creation across Africa and require systemic approaches to diagnose and work on interventions to address the numerous constraints on growth of MSMEs.
