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.

As stated by the EBRD, the project consists in a Resilience and Livelihoods Guarantee in the form of an unfunded risk-sharing instrument covering up to 50 per cent of the credit risk in newly originated sub-loans with the total value of EUR100 million equivalent to be originated by Kredobank Ukraine subject to total 50 per cent of portfolio cap. The RLG facility will be delivered in two equal tranches, with the second tranche being uncommitted.

The Project will include a sub-limit under the SME Competitiveness Programme in the European Union's Eastern Partnership ("EaP SMEC" sub-limit, assigned with a separate EBRD project number 54641) of EUR15 million or 15% of the Covered Portfolio to finance long term capital investments of micro-, small-, and medium sized enterprises to upgrade their technologies and equipment to EU standards, including investments in sustainable and green technologies (70% of EaP SMEC sub-limit), thereby enhancing businesses' competitiveness. Eligible sub-borrowers will also receive technical assistance funded by the EU and grant support in the form of investment incentives upon the completion of their investment projects.

The facility will be used to support lending to Ukrainian private companies (predominantly MSMEs) operating in the primary and secondary agriculture and other critical industries (inter alia food processing, retail, logistics), with the ultimate goal of preserving livelihoods in Ukraine.
