According to the bank website, "financial inclusion of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Sri Lanka remains a key development priority for the government given SMEs' large demand for credit, the financial barriers facing SMEs, and SMEs'' potential for reducing unemployment and regional inequalities. This additional financing will provide loans to Sri Lankan banks to encourage them to grow their SME portfolios; and will extend the current successful project, which otherwise would close ahead of schedule, through March 2020."

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
