According to the Bank’s website, the project consists of a loan (PL) to support EU small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) / mid-caps, climate and/or innovation financing as well as other policy objectives. The PL will achieve its objectives through the participation in senior and/or mezzanine tranches of securitsation structures issued by acceptable EU financial institutions such as banks and leasing companies.
This programme loan is a dedicated securitisation (ABS) purchasing and guarantee programme to allow banks to transfer risk of portfolios of loans for the purpose of mobilising c. EUR 7 billion of support mainly targeting EU SMEs and mid-caps, but not excluding other policy areas such as climate, innovation, etc. This initiative is intended to provide a swift support to EU final beneficiaries, whose access to finance is being jeopardised by an ongoing war at the gates of Europe, high inflation levels not seen in decades and high energy prices. In addition, the PL would strive to support other key priority EU policies such as REPowerEU under certain sub-operations.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF EIB
The EIB Complaints Mechanism is designed to facilitate and handle complaints against the EIB by individuals, organizations or corporations affected by EIB activities. When exercising the right to lodge a complaint against the EIB, any member of the public has access to a two-tier procedure, one internal - the Complaints Mechanism Office - and one external - the European Ombudsman. A complaint can be lodged via a written communication addressed to the Secretary General of the EIB, via email to the dedicated email address: email@example.com, by completing the online complaint form available at the following address: http://www.eib.org/complaints/form via fax or delivered directly to the EIB Complaints Mechanism Division, any EIB local representation office or any EIB staff. For further details, check: http://www.eib.org/attachments/strategies/complaints_mechanism_policy_en.pdf
When dissatisfied with a complaint to the EIB Complaints Mechanism, citizens can then turn towards the European Ombudsman. A memorandum of Understanding has been signed between the EIB and the European Ombudsman establishes that citizens (even outside of the EU if the Ombudsman finds their complaint justified) can turn towards the Ombudsman on issues related to 'maladministration' by the EIB. Note that before going to the Ombudsman, an attempt must be made to resolve the case by contacting the EIB. In addition, the complaint must be made within two years of the date when the facts on which your complaint is based became known to you. You can write to the Ombudsman in any of the languages of the European Union.
