Project Description

The EBRD is considering a senior loan of up to €50 million equivalent to Garanti Leasing (“GL”), a subsidiary of Garanti Bank (“GB”), the second largest privately owned bank in Turkey to expand its equipment leasing activities to micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) in Turkey. The purpose of the project is to increase the availability of leasing finance for machinery and equipment to MSMEs located in underserved regions. EBRD financing will enable the Company to offer long-term leases to MSME clients.

Transition Impact

Transition impact will stem from expanding the availability of leasing products in priority development regions in Turkey drawing on GL’s expertise in providing equipment finance to MSMEs to expand leasing products further in the regions.
