Project Description

The EBRD is considering providing a loan of PLN 80 million to Prime Car Management 2 (PCM2) to enable the company to expand a vehicle lease portfolio to micro, small and medium sized enterprises (MSMEs) in Poland.

Transition Impact

The loan will support development of Polish SMEs across the country, including smaller towns.

Project Cost

Environmental Impact

Categorised FI (2008). Masterlease will be required to comply with the Bank's Performance Requirements 2 (Labour and Working Conditions) and 9 (Financial Intermediaries).
