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 EBRD, following the decision of MIDF's (Municipal Infrastructure Development Fund) shareholders to wind down the Fund's operations, EBRD is considering assuming MIDF's funded risk participation with Komercijalna Banka to provide up to EUR 5 million to fund municipal infrastructure projects in FYR Macedonia on a 50/50 basis with KB. The project will demonstrate the Bank's support for MIDF's existing investments as well as new municipal investments in FYR Macedonia. The Facility will enable the Bank to provide financing to small and medium sized municipalities that have significant investments needs, but limited access to financing and poor capacity for preparing good quality projects. Grant financed TC will be provided to facilitate project preparation as well as for subsequent project implementation with an aim to develop the commercial sustainability and institutional capabilities of the municipal borrowers.
