Translated version of this PSD: Mongolian
The EBRD is considering to continue its support for the financial sector in Mongolia with a new € 60 million finance framework for existing and new clients.
The Framework will increase the financing of MSMEs, including in local currency, and enhance lending and risk management skills in participating banks.
The first transaction under this framework will be an MSME loan to XacBank of US$ 5 mln to extend MSME lending to local borrowers.
The transition impact of the proposed Framework will derive from (i) further improvement of financial intermediation in Mongolia and providing medium-term financing to the MSME sector, (ii) supporting new product development (i.e. Value Chain Finance) and thus improving access to finance for MSMEs, (iii) including new Participating Banks, and (iv) supporting Participating Banks to improve business procedures and risk management.
Commercial banks in Mongolia.
XacBank, the first transaction under the Framework, is the fourth largest bank in Mongolia with US$ 1.1 bn in assets and US$ 109 m in equity. XacBank is a retail and MSME-oriented bank with an extensive branch network.
€60 million Finance Framework.
Categorised FI. All Participating Banks (PBs) under the Framework will be required to comply with the EBRD's Performance Requirements 2 and 9.
This involves compliance with EBRD's Environmental and Social Exclusion and Referral Lists; requiring all clients to comply with national regulations and standards on environment, health and safety, labour, social issues and public consultation; and implementation of EBRD's Environmental and Social Procedures for Small and Micro Loans as outlined in the eManual.
All new PBs will be required to complete EBRD's Human Resources Due Diligence Questionnaire and E&S Due Diligence Questionnaires and submit those for EBRD's review to establish compliance with PRs 2 and 9.
Environmental and social due diligence training may be provided to new PBs. All PBs will be required to submit annual environmental and social reports to the EBRD.
During the implementation of the Mongolian Financial Sector Framework II, new TC will be requested on a case-by-case basis where it is considered necessary to strengthen Participating Banks’ capacities. It is expected that TC will be needed in areas of risk management, new products development, institution building and corporate governance.

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.
