Project Description

According to the bank, the proposed project (the Project) consists of a Synthetic Risk Transfer (“SRT”) transaction in which IFC will take up to MXN 2.4 billion of unfunded mezzanine risk exposure towards a MXN 34.3 billion portfolio of SME and mid-sized corporate loans originated by Santander Mexico. The capital relief Santander Mexico obtains from the SRT will enable it to significantly increase its SME lending.

People Affected By This Project

The project will enable Santander Mexico to increase the amount of its SME and mid-market lending. The project will also contribute to creating a market for SRTs in Latin America by promoting integration of the region into the global SRT market through eventual replication of this transaction by others.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC

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/
