Project Description

The EBRD is considering providing a senior loan of up to €60 million to UniCredit Bank Serbia JSC (UCB Serbia) for on-lending to SMEs and medium-sized corporates in Serbia. The proceeds of the loan will be used by UCB Serbia to provide medium and long-term financing to private companies for production, investment, trade, services and working capital needs.

Transition Impact

The SME and Medium Corporate credit line will contribute to the transition process by maintaining an essential flow of lending to private enterprises at a time when the availability of credit, particularly to SMEs and corporates, has been constrained. Transition impact potential also derives from the demonstration effect associated with the energy savings and will help improvement of competitiveness of the private SME and corporate sector.
