Korean government has been funding the small and medium enterprises (SME) with superior technology based on scorecard. However high default rate of funded SMEs has been reported. In order to effectively manage such governmental fund, it is important to develop accurate scoring model for SMEs. In this paper, we provide a random effects logistic regression model to predict the default of funded SMEs based on both financial and non-financial factors. Advantage of such a random effects model lies in the ability of accommodating not only the individual characteristics of each SME but also the uncertainty that cannot be explained by such individual factors. It is expected that our study can contribute to effective management of government funds by proposing the prediction models for defaults of funded SMEs.
