The GNI® also includes an electronic payment gateway, a chat box, a licensing gateway for regulated activities, and a financing module geared at helping small and medium-sized businesses request and access credit and financing facilities from financial institutions.

It is an effective way for governments to empower entrepreneurs and improve business activity and quality in their country.
