  21. 21. 214/14/2018 Challenges | Innovation Grants - Solve the Challenge Access to Finance  Even though Pakistan has one of the highest rates of mobile technology penetration, the uptake of digital financial instruments remains relatively low  Lack of credit history for SMEs leads to poor credit ratings and limits access to financial support.  Financial Institutes have a number of lending products for SMEs, however, businesses are unable to access this funding due to lack of awareness and hesitance to approach the formal sector Access to Export Market  A large number of industries in Pakistan face difficulty in exports; either due to lack of understanding of markets, difficulty in being compliant to export market requirements or inability to reach markets.
  22. 22. 224/14/2018 Challenges | Innovation Grants - Solve the Challenge ICT  Current sales and customer service channels rely heavily on human interaction which are non-scalable, non-standardized and inefficient. This leads to inconsistent customer service standards and difficulty to provide extensive knowledge to customers based on their needs, and loss of ability to cross sell similar products.  ICT innovations have been radically changing industries and the user interfaces with businesses worldwide, however, its use and penetration within the sphere of the hospitality sector still remains from low to negligible in Pakistan.  Limited understanding of export opportunities, customer needs and actionable market linkages are limiting the growth of ICT exports in emerging technologies and markets.
  23. 23. 234/14/2018 Challenges | Innovation Grants - Solve the Challenge Hospitality  Lack of reliable information available for hospitality sector (eateries, lodging, travel) creates friction and decreases customer confidence and retention.  Lack of awareness towards alternate tourist destinations and routes, increases demand in already crowded, famous tourist resorts, diminishing the supply quality, which results in poor customer experience, eventually decreasing customer base. Women-Led Enterprises  Socio-cultural norms, mobility constraints and workplace conditions are some of the factors that limit women's participation in the workforce in the ICT and hospitality sectors
