According to the Bank’s website, the proposed investment is an IFC senior debt investment of up to EUR6 million to the Agency for Finance in Kosovo (AFK), a leading microfinance institution in Kosovo. The investment will be shared equally between IFC’s own account and concessional financing provided by the Global Agriculture & Food Security Program (“GAFSP”). The proceeds from the proposed investment will be used for on-lending to individual entrepreneurs and micro-businesses in Kosovo, including smallholder farmers, microenterprises, women-owned small businesses and entrepreneurs operating in the agriculture sector and underserved rural areas. The project fits IFC’s and GAFSP’s strategy by directly supporting investment in micro and small enterprises and agribusiness in Kosovo.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC/MIGA
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
