Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The full amount of USD 13 million (USD 3 million equity and USD 10 million Mezzanine loan) will be used for a combination of working capital financing, warehouses/servicing facilities and for the engine rebuild faciliity. 50% of the mezzanine loan will be used to purchase equipment for rental and leasing purposes. This transaction is a co-investment with The Mongolia Opportunities Fund (MOF), which is being managed by Mongolia Opportunities Partners.

This co-investment provides an opportunity for FMO to participate in an attractive company with significant growth potential. Mining development has boosted the demand for heavy machinery and mining equipment. The development impact is excellent, given the provision of long-term risk-bearing capital by DFIs in challenging times and circumstances. The transaction is the first co-investment opportunity with MOF which has a perfect fit with FMO's strategy to provide direct investments alongside the PE Funds we have already invested in.

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.


Communities who believe they will be negatively affected by a project funded by the Dutch Development Bank (FMO) may be able to file a complaint with the Independent Complaints Mechanism, which is the joint independent accountability mechanism of the Dutch Development Bank (FMO) and the German Investment Corporation (KfW) . A complaint can be filed in writing, by email, post, or online. The complaint can be filed in English or any other language of the complainant. The Independent Complaints Mechanism is comprised of a three-member Independent Expert Panel and it can provide either problem-solving, compliance review or both, in either order. Additional information about this accountability mechanism, including a guide and template for filing a complaint, can be found at:
