Project Description

The provision of an MSME A/B loan of up to EUR 55 million equivalent to QNB Finans Finansal Kiralama A.S. ("QNB Finans Leasing" or the "Company"), a subsidiary of QNB Finansbank to finance MSMEs in Turkey.

Project Objectives

The proceeds of the A/B loan will be used for on-lending to micro, small and medium-sized businesses which have limited level of financial intermediation and constrained access to long-term finance. The project will assist QNB Finans Leasing to further diversify its funding base, while growing its leasing portfolio to MSMEs across the country.

Transition Impact

The impact of the project will stem from: (i) fostering SME competitiveness by increasing availability of financing; and (ii) contributing to the resilience of QNB Finans Leasing's business by supporting sustainable portfolio growth.

Text of the PIP

Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM)

If efforts to address environmental, social or public disclosure concerns with the Client or the Bank are unsuccessful (e.g. through the Client’s Project-level grievance mechanism or through direct engagement with Bank management), individuals and organisations may seek to address their concerns through the EBRD’s Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM).

IPAM independently reviews Project issues that are believed to have caused (or to be likely to cause) harm. The purpose of the Mechanism is: to support dialogue between Project stakeholders to resolve environmental, social and public disclosure issues; to determine whether the Bank has complied with its Environmental and Social Policy or Project-specific provisions of its Access to Information Policy; and where applicable, to address any existing non-compliance with these policies, while preventing future non-compliance by the Bank.

Please visit the Independent Project Accountability Mechanism webpage to find out how to submit a Request for review through our confidential online form, by email, mail or telephone. IPAM is available to discuss your concerns and answer any questions you may have about the submission or handling of Requests, which follow the Project Accountability Policy and Guidance. Requestors’ identities may be kept confidential, upon request.
