A partner in growth
Tanmeyah Microenterprise Services is Egypt’s leading non-bank provider of microfinance solutions and the country’s second-largest microlender. The company caters to owners of micro and very small businesses across Egypt who lack access to financing from the traditional banking sector.
Through dedicated well-trained staff supported by state-of-the-art technologies, the company provides a comprehensive suite of microfinance solutions that target high-need areas across the country.
To bring banking and financial services to the underprivileged members of society
Financial success and opportunities for ambitious, hardworking lower-income business owners, who contribute to a growing economy
Despite Egypt’s young and vibrant population and its well established and advanced banking sector, the vast majority of Egyptian businesses remain outside the scope of the banking industry. These individually owned and very small enterprises are considered “un-bankable” by major financial institutions and lack access to the funding needed to grow their business.
Tanmeyah is a strong believer in these hard-working and entrepreneurial Egyptians. By helping them start or scale their businesses, it will boost employment and improve the standard of living of their families and communities. Micro and very small enterprises are the greatest contributors to jobs and the economy, and we believe their success is crucial to the country’s prosperity.
Three factors enable Tanmeyah to successfully serve clients overlooked by the banking sector: highly personal service by dedicated well-trained staff, nationwide reach, state-of-the-art technologies.
Tanmeyah is a part of EFG Hermes’ rapidly growing group of non-banking financial institutions.
Tanmeyah ensures high-quality, personalized service by investing in our staff. We recruit qualified and dedicated people from the communities where we operate, provide extensive in-house training, and promote from within. As a result, our staff are uniquely aware of the needs of the clients they serve and have deep insight into their local business environments.

Our success rests on our ability to reach the unreachable. With a network of more than 283 branches in urban and rural neighborhoods from the Delta to Upper Egypt, we operate in the hearts of the communities where our clients have their businesses. With around-the-clock support from our in-house call center, these community-based “mini-banks” are able to build close ties with customers and work on the ground to help them grow.
