Project Description

The proposed project is medium term financing to Joint-Stock Bank Kreditprom (“Kreditprom”) to support its lending to private micro, small and medium-size companies. The project consists of a USD 10 million SME credit line for on-lending to local SMEs and a USD 7 million MSE credit line for on-lending to local MSEs.

The funds will be on-lent to micro, small and medium sized enterprises, whose demand for financing is high and further growing. The MSE sub-loans will be increasingly directed to rural and agricultural MSEs. The loans to SME sector would meet the demand for investment finance from local businesses.


Transition Impact

The long-term financing received from EBRD will enable Kreditprom to on-lend to small companies which traditionally have little or no access to long-term finance. The extension of the MSE programme to rural and agricultural regions helps to ease regional and economic inequalities. Sub-loans from the MSE/SME credit lines have a positive impact on local economic situation and employment level as micro, small and medium sized companies, which represent the backbone of the economy, are enabled to grow and develop further.
