Project Description

USD 40 million in support of the Bank’s Financial Sector Strategy for Kyrgyz Republic which aims to strengthen the sector by addressing identified gaps and weaknesses and promoting best practice.

This framework will enable the Bank to increase both the amount and variety of medium-term funding available to a range of financial intermediaries. The product range will include senior debt facilities for MSME on-lending, residential mortgage lines, consumer finance, leasing, insurance, syndicated loans, subordinated loans, quasi-equity and equity investments.

Transition Impact

The project will have a significant transition impact in the Kyrgyz Republic by contributing to the structure and extent of financial markets, increase of product range and skills transfer/new standards for business conduct. The project will support development of the private companies and banking sector in Kyrgyz Republic by increasing medium and long-term financing to the productive sector of the economy through local banks.

Finally, application of the EBRD’s List of Minimum Standards (LMS) and obligatory arrangements as regards mortgage-related insurance products is expected to contribute to the financial discipline within the banks and stimulate the development of the insurance sector in the Kyrgyz Republic.
