Project Description

According to the bank, the up to USD 15 mln 7-year facility is to be on-lent to local SMEs, in line with FMO's definition. This transaction fits FMO’s strategy of financing economic growth as well as FI LAC’s strategy to support the Paraguayan banking system in strengthening E&S risk management. Bancop is categorized as E&S risk B due to its loan portfolio (small average loan size, short tenors & no IFC PS trigger project). An ESAP was agreed to review and upgrade their existing ESMS and to incorporate the E&S sector guides that are developed by the Mesa de Finanzas Sostenibles, with support of FMO.
