We engage in collaborative efforts with financial institutions in developing and refining focused and innovative programs to ensure the financial inclusion of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs). Our work involves the establishment and operationalization of MSME finance departments with a sound strategy as a sustainable business segment. We also support the development of internal MSME lending mechanisms, risk management tools, procedures, business models, and delivery mechanisms in line with the corporate strategy. We build comprehensive data management tools, scoring and monitoring mechanisms at financial institutions for MSME lending. We foster capacity building through tailored training, on-the-job coaching and strategy development.

Since the inception of our journey in 2003, Frankfurt School Turcasia has been at the forefront of various MSME-focused technical assistance programs in the region. From 2010 to 2017, we imparted knowledge through our training services to over 3000 banking professionals, enriching their expertise in diverse domains such as MSME lending, agricultural lending, women-led SME finance and so on. Our work not only targets finance professionals but also the MSMEs – we implement programs to enhance the financial, digital and business skills of MSMEs and entrepreneurs to ensure sustainable growth in developing markets. Lastly, we establish policy dialogue with governments and civil society for the elaboration of focused programs for the improvement of entrepreneurship ecosystems for innovation and sustainability.


The FS-UNEP Centre demonstrates a remarkable capacity to integrate sustainable energy and climate finance best practices through a multidisciplinary approach that involves comprehensive research, strategic advisory, and capacity-building initiatives. Beyond its role as a centre of excellence, the FS-UNEP Centre actively engages in think-tank endeavours, taking the lead in advancing knowledge that bears direct relevance to policy formulation in the realm of sustainable energy and climate finance. Their efforts aim to stimulate and facilitate the financial community to grow existing investments or take their first steps into new markets, particularly in developing countries.

FS TURCASIA is deeply immersed in various climate finance initiatives, predominantly in Türkiye and Central Asia. These projects encompass a broad spectrum, spanning from advisory services rendered to governmental bodies for green policies and transformation, effective management of climate finance through credit lines, capacity building to the financial sector to foster green finance practices, to the facilitation of the adoption of green technologies, particularly in the agricultural sector.


Frankfurt School is the world leader in designing and executing sustainable gender mainstreaming initiatives for financial institutions. Our advisory services successfully promote gender-responsive banking across diverse territories. A cornerstone of our approach is deploying a meticulously tested and proven gender diagnostic methodology tailored particularly for commercial and multilateral development banks. Combined with our expertise, this methodology facilitates the formulation of gender strategies, action plans, robust reporting frameworks, and monitoring mechanisms, all collectively geared towards cultivating gender-responsive operations that align with industry-level reporting standards. As a result of our dedicated efforts, we proudly support financial operations that benefit women and girls.

Our commitment to gender inclusivity is all-encompassing, permeating financial institutions' internal and external actions. This holistic approach serves as a catalyst, spawning synergy between realms, such as the cross-cutting elements between gender equality and climate change, rural development, migration, and sustainable agriculture. Our UNEP Collaborating Centre for Climate & Sustainable Energy Finance is a strategic asset, positioning gender considerations at the forefront of climate change endeavours.

Our gender-focused capacity-building programs are precisely calibrated to empower women entrepreneurs. We facilitate their financial and managerial knowledge and skills through a blend of training, seminars, webinars, and other technical advice services. As an added value, we have devised unique self-diagnostic tools that enable women entrepreneurs to identify their strengths and areas open to improvement within their businesses. We also engage in dialogue with policymakers to design gender-informed programs to facilitate women’s economic and social empowerment.


FS TURCASIA pursues a holistic approach to the provision of advisory services for agricultural development and finance to ensure sustainable agricultural development in Türkiye. This approach combines access to finance for individuals and enterprises involved in agriculture and agriculture-related activities, access to technical consultancy for all sizes of farms and agribusinesses, access to market through the development of innovative cost-efficient delivery channels, and access to know-how via capacity-building at both agricultural enterprises and financial institutions.

Frankfurt School’s trilogy to have better agribusiness and food economics starts with “Better Finance” through financial institutions, continues with “Better Farming” for increased efficiency, productivity, and sustainability, and lasts with “Better Marketing” meaning effective linkages and players between farmers and end-buyers. In line with this holistic standpoint, we advise the financial sector and agribusinesses to develop climate-smart technologies and sustainable financing models to promote green agricultural practices throughout the value chain.

FS TURCASIA has implemented pioneer projects in Azerbaijan, Georgia, Tajikistan, and Türkiye until today. Our extensive experience covers the design and implementation of agricultural, livestock, and agri-food data collection assignments, along with data management infrastructure development; preparation of sectoral action plans, roadmaps, and policy suggestion reports based on significant analysis of field data collection, surveys, interviews, and focus groups.

Our flagship product is the Agricultural Loan Evaluation System (ALES), which aims to strengthen the agricultural lending capacity of banks and establish the necessary link between agricultural enterprises and financial institutions via the collection and analysis of solid field data on agricultural & livestock indicators and climatic parameters.


People who have fled war and persecution can begin to rebuild their lives with respect and dignity if they are given the chance to work and make a living. Türkiye faces ongoing migration challenges due to its critical geopolitical position and its place in the Eastern Mediterranean migration route. Türkiye’s proximity to nations experiencing internal crises is another cause of these challenges.

Türkiye has concentrated on the financial and social integration of refugees to maintain a robust economy in the wake of the increasing refugee influx from neighbouring countries since 2011. In this regard, FS TURCASIA has established partnerships with governmental institutions, entrepreneurs, NGOs, and financial institutions in Türkiye. Our aim is to facilitate the financial and social inclusion of marginalised groups, including refugees, drawing on our extensive academic and professional expertise.

FS TURCASIA develops the capacities of partner banks, public institutions and private sector actors through inclusive and sustainable financing methods, from design to implementation, to meet the financial needs of refugees and other marginalised groups and thus facilitate their financial inclusion. We actively contribute to beneficiaries achieving their goals, both in terms of demand and supply. These contributions are made by providing consultancy services for sectoral research, field surveys, and need assessments and by finding instant solutions to reduce risks during implementation.

We seamlessly promote the means to achieve UN SDG 8 - Decent Work and Economic Growth, UN SDG 10 - Reduced Inequalities, and UN SDG 17 - Partnership for the Goals via the projects we have been implementing.


FS TURCASIA is deeply committed to fostering youth empowerment, offering its expertise through advisory services to diverse NGOs, youth-focused foundations, financial institutions, and other stakeholders invested in youth development. We holistically help our stakeholders through our tailor-made approach to ensure youth mainstreaming in their policy, consultancy, training, institutional restructuring, and financing operations.

We recognise the imperative to enhance youth-led entrepreneurship initiatives and businesses. In response to this imperative, we have successfully executed a series of projects to catalyse youth development and empowerment, with a strong commitment to ongoing efforts in this arena. Through collaborative partnerships, we aim to increase awareness among financial institutions and government bodies regarding the challenges hindering access to finance and advisory of youth communities.

We advocate for an ecosystem approach for youth-led businesses to reduce the resistance they encounter and improve environments in which young entrepreneurs operate to help them flourish. It should include enhancing financial literacy and business education, improving (young people’s capacity to) access funding sources, providing mentorship and business advisory services, and fostering a supportive entrepreneurial ecosystem.

A critical cycle for the competitive power of countries should be established in production and service systems. This cycle should involve real-time integration and continuous communication of the entire value chain. With Industry 4.0, advanced technologies such as extensive data analysis, additive manufacturing(3D printers), intelligent sensors, and smart grids need to be integrated into production and service processes. Further, the digitalization of the entire value chain is necessary. In this way, each factor contributing to traditional methods can communicate through the digital ecosystem by enabling increased production speed and process efficiency.
