The investment involves the provision of a EUR 5 million loan to Compagnie Internationale de leasing ("CIL") for on-lending to micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) in Tunisia.
The proposed project targets MSMEs in Tunisia, which are the core of the Tunisian economy, but remain underserved by the banking sector. In the context of the current COVID-19 crisis, the proposed project will support CIL in addressing the funding needs of the local MSMEs' for capex purposes.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF EBRD
The Project Complaint Mechanism (PCM) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the PCM, it may assess compliance with EBRD's own policies and procedures to prevent harm to the environment or communities or it may assist you in resolving the problem that led to the complaint through a dialogue with those implementing the project. Additionally, the PCM has the authority to recommend a project be suspended in the event that harm is imminent. You can contact the PCM at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can submit a complaint online using an online form, http://www.ebrd.com/eform/pcm/complaint_form?language=en. You can learn more about the PCM and how to file a complaint at http://www.ebrd.com/work-with-us/project-finance/project-complaint-mechanism.html.
