Project Description

The proposed Project consists of a funding package to Tanzania Mortgage Refinancing Company (“TMRC” or “the Company”), comprising of (a) a straight equity investment of up to US$2 million and (b) participation in TMRC’s Medium Term Note (“MTN”) Programme of up to US$10 million equivalent in Tanzania Shillings (“TZS”). The Project will strengthen TMRC’s balance sheet and enable long-term support for the growth of the mortgage financing market in Tanzania. The Project will be supported by the Local Currency Facility (“LCF”) of the IDA18 IFC-MIGA Private Sector Window (”IDA PSW”), created by the Word Bank Group to catalyze private sector investment in IDA countries, with a focus on fragile and conflict-affected states. The LCF will help deepen the regional capital markets by supporting longer-term local currency bond issuances, and will contribute to make homeownership more affordable thanks to the extension of mortgage loans maturities.

The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org. You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org/
