Project Description

The project consists of a subscription of a social bond with a focus on gender for up to the equivalent in Colombian pesos to US$40 million, to be issued by a Colombian entity through an offer on Colombia's Second Market. The issue will be divided into two series: (i) Series A, for the equivalent in Colombian pesos of up to US$ 20 million, which will be committed, and will have a term of up to 3 years with a bullet payment; and (ii) Series B, for the equivalent in Colombian pesos of up to US $ 20 million, which will be uncommitted and will have a term of up to 5 years.

The proceeds from the issue will be used to grow the entity's portfolio of loans aimed at women-led micro enterprises projects promoting gender equality in the country, in line with UNDP Sustainable Development Goal 5 on gender equality. A methodological framework will be developed setting eligibility criteria and reporting indicators to enable the proper selection and monitoring of projects to receive financing.

IDB Invest will provide technical assistance to obtain a second party opinion confirming the suitability of the methodological framework. IDB Invest will also help the client build a gender-based commercial strategy.
