Project Description

Credit line of DM 20 million to Prvá komunálna banka for on-lending to private enterprises.

The project aims to: (i) support a developing regional private sector financial institution in the Slovak Republic that is committed to the local market and the expansion of its term lending operations for investment purposes; (ii) develop financial intermediation; (iii) finance indirectly investment projects that the EBRD cannot finance itself due to their small size; (iv) increase long-term funding on the Slovak market for financing medium and long-term investment projects of private sector enterprises established and operating in the Slovak Republic or in the Czech Republic.

Transition Impact

The credit line will support the growth and strengthening of the private sector by advancing its modernisation and restructuring.
