According to the Bank’s website, the project consists of a loan portfolio guaranty intended to increase lending to micro, small, and medium enterprises in Serbia, with a focus on the agricultural sector, underserved regions, and women-owned businesses.
This Project aims to provide lending opportunities to MSMEs, including those in the agriculture sector, which face major constraints to their competitiveness. The Project will allow Addiko Bank to expand lending to MSMEs, with tenors longer than what the bank is currently able to provide.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF THE UNITED STATES INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT FINANCE CORPORATION (DFC)
The Office of Accountability is an independent office that addresses complaints about environmental or social issues related to DFC-supported projects. The office provides communities an opportunity to have concerns independently reviewed and addressed. If you submit a complaint to the Office of Accountability, it may assist you by either seeking to address your problems by facilitating a problem solving dialogue between you and those implementing the project and/or investigating whether the DFC complied with its policies to prevent environmental, social, human rights, and labor harms.
