Project Description

The EBRD is considering providing a four year senior loan of RUB 300 million to SDM bank, operating in Moscow and eight regions of Russia. The loan will be used to financing private SMEs in the Russian regions and Moscow. The project will provide necessary long-term resources to SDM Bank thereby supporting it in its efforts to continue lending to SMEs in the Russian Federation.

Transition Impact

The EBRD financing will support diversification of SDM’s banking business and development of high quality banking services. The proposed financing will help SDM to continue lending to SMEs and prudently expanding its operations. Given SDM’s focus on SMEs and wide network, engaging with SDM is a good opportunity for increasing mid-term financing of local SMEs.
