We co-finance BDS for SMEs, provide access to finance, develop BSP infrastructures, as well as involve in LED. Based on the know-how provided by our partner (ProSME), and under their instruction we have been involved in LED initiatives in four communities. The methodology, which we received, known as Participatory Appraisal of Competitive Advantage (PACA, www.mesopartner.com), is based on participatory approach to discovering competitive advantages of a community, mobilization of local resources to catalyze series of short-time actions. Regardless of the result of every single action, the aggregate impact is the progress in interrelations and understanding of local development. Being an opportunity-driven concept, PACA identifies the motivation for action of local actors, who in turn, start defining and implementing practical activities, leading to quick wins. PACA for us is not only a tool to drive progress in micro business environment from bottom-up, but also a mean to better manage our resources, based on the results and lessons learned from involvement in local initiatives. We intend to build a national LED facility, which will serve interested communities as beneficiaries. Before claiming for that ability we need to strengthen our capacity by training a group (at least 5) of professional PACA experts and running 2-3 PACA projects. The training and first PACA exercise are planed in one of the most disadvantaged communities of Armenia ? the town of Charentsavan.
