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.

According to the project disclosure, the International Finance Corporation (IFC) is proposing an investment of up to US$200 million in a senior unsecured A Loan to Shinhan Bank Co., Ltd. (SHB) for up to 5 years with a bullet repayment and quarterly interest payments, to be committed in two tranches of US$ 100 million each.
The Project will be structured as a back-to-back financing arrangement - with the borrower being SHB, and all the proceeds to be exclusively used for on-lending to PT Bank Shinhan Indonesia (BSI or the Bank).
The Project will be in the form of a sustainability loan dedicated to finance: (i) eligible blue assets for 15% of the loan, (ii) eligible green assets for 40% of the loan, (iii) eligible social assets for 20% of the loan, and (iv) the remaining 25% to be allocated to any of the three types of eligible assets.
The Project also supports the ‘National Action Plan on Marine Debris (2017-2025)’, which calls for efforts to reduce 70% of its plastic debris from a 2017 baseline by the end of 2025.

The Project is expected to provide blue financing that will contribute to improving sustainability in fishery and/or waste leakage and reducing the amount of untreated wastewater discharge through supporting fishery improvement projects and wastewater treatment projects. Given majority Indonesia's territory at sea, keeping marine ecosystem sustainable is critical for livelihood of many Indonesians involving the ocean-related activities.
Additionally, financing demand for climate mitigation and adaptation projects remains unmet and the Project is anticipated to increase the availability of green financing and to contribute to reduction of GHG emissions by supporting projects involving renewable energies, green mobility, etc. Last but not least, on the Project level, this investment is also expected to bridge the MSME financing gap though social loans.
