The DaNa Facility

The DaNa Facility supports inclusive economic growth and private sector development in Myanmar,
through responsible and sustainable business growth, investment and trade.
The Facility is a UK Department for International Development (DFID)-funded, 5-year programme. 
It was established in May 2016 as one of three components of DFID’s wider
‘Business for Shared Prosperity’ (BSP) programme.



  • We have three delivery mechanisms: technical assistance; direct grant funding; and open and competitive ‘calls’ for co-funding of innovative projects that have the potential to deliver positive and impactful change.
  • We have an ability to identify and respond rapidly to pertinent opportunities and requests for support, and a willingness to be flexible, support innovative new concepts, and take informed risks where necessary.
  • We have the capacity to coordinate our activities at the firm, business sector, sub-national, and national government levels, to harness synergies and create sustainable impacts.
  • Providing support to the Myanmar government’s economic policy priorities and objectives in private sector development is a high priority for the Facility, as is working in close coordination with other development partners in Myanmar.


DaNa catalyses the creation of productive jobs and increased incomes by working on:

  • Policy, legal and regulatory reforms that support inclusive, responsible and sustainable private sector business growth.
  • Increasing access to financial products and services for businesses, and particularly micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs), and smallholder producers in rural areas.
  • Increasing investment and trade flows in non-extractive, job-creating business sectors that have the potential to be transformative for the Myanmar economy.
  • Promoting greater market openness, competitiveness and business innovation.
  • Increasing economic opportunities and participation by women and disadvantaged groups in business activities.
  • Supporting innovations in selected sectors and value chains that create job opportunities and increased incomes for poor and disadvantaged men and women, especially in marginal and conflict-affected states and regions.
