The project consists of supporting Cooperativa de Ahorro y Credito Jardin Azuayo Ltda ("CJA"), in the first Senior Social Bond of Diversity and Inclusion in Ecuador and the region. The total amount of the Bond is up to US$20 million with a four-year term. IDB Invest will act as anchor investor with a subscription for a total amount of up to US$10 million. Other potential investors will participate with up to US$10 million. The proceeds of the Bond will be aimed at expanding the financing to micro, small and medium-sized enterprises ("MSMEs") led by and/or owned by indigenous people, migrants, women, low-income people and/or people with low levels of education.
Additionally, a technical advisory will be provided to: (i) better assess credit decisions towards women and under-represented groups by developing alternative credit scorings such as psychometric tools; (ii) to strengthen the gender and diversity impact measurement and reporting by improving their data collection systems; and (iii) design the conceptual framework of the Social Bond and finance the second party opinion ("SPO").

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IDB / IDB INVEST
The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IDB Invest)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IDB Invest is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
