The proposed project consists of subscribing senior bonds to Creditos y Ahorro Credifinanciera S.A. (“Credifinanciera or the “Company”) for up to COP 35,000 million (approximately US$11 million) to support the growth of the Company’s microenterprise and pensioners loan portfolio. IFC’s financial support and mobilization efforts should send a positive signal to the market, as it would provide medium-to-long term financing through a bond issuance aimed at targeted institutional investors, ultimately deepening financial and capital markets in Colombia (the “Country”).
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/
