Project Description

MDM-bank (MDM) is planning to raise a senior A/B loan of USD 225 million, of which USD 75 million (A loan) will be the EBRD portion and USD 150 million (B loan) will be syndicated to commercial banks.

The project aims to support the bank in refocusing its business towards retail banking and private sector Micro, Small and Medium Size Enterprises (MSME). It will assist MDM in raising a syndicated loan of longer maturity than achieved to date by the bank.

Transition Impact

  • The proposed project will promote financial intermediation in Russia by using the broad regional network of MDM to reach Russian MSME and retail customers with longer tenor funding.
  • The proposed project is expected to foster competition in the banking sector by giving borrowers in different regions across Russia greater choice in accessing banking products which best fit their needs.
  • EBRD’s involvement in the syndicated loan transaction will further enhance the bank’s image with its potential lenders and facilitate MDM’s access to longer-term commercial funding.

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.
