Project Description

Following the decision of MIDF's (Municipal Infrastructure Development Fund) shareholders to wind down the Fund's operations, EBRD is considering assuming MIDF's funded risk participation ("Facility") with Komercijalna Banka ("KB") to provide up to EUR 5 million to fund municipal infrastructure projects in FYR Macedonia on a 50/50 basis with KB.

Project Objectives

The Project will demonstrate the Bank's support for MIDF's existing investments as well as new municipal investments in FYR Macedonia. The Facility will enable the Bank to provide financing to small and medium sized municipalities that have significant investments needs, but limited access to financing and poor capacity for preparing good quality projects. Grant financed TC will be provided to facilitate project preparation as well as for subsequent project implementation with an aim to develop the commercial sustainability and institutional capabilities of the municipal borrowers.

Transition Impact

The Bank's involvement in the Facility carries transition impact potential both in terms of the scope for partnering with KB to engage in municipal projects as well as the deploying of the TC funds for
crucial capacity building at small and medium sized municipalities in FYR Macedonia.
