Project Description

This project provides financing to support 3 financial institutions in Europe and Central Asia, with a focus on Uzbekistan and Belarus. According to Bank documents, the intended aim is to mitigate the effects of the previous financial crisis, and to improve risk management practices. 

People Affected By This Project

The Program intends to work with 3 financial institutions in to strengthen their internal risk management systems, develop risk based strategies and to assist them in improving their management of NPLs. This will improve partner FI's risk management practices, and in some cases, decrease NPLs contributing to a more sustainable banking system.

The Program will help develop the foundations of the FIs, giving them the tools to become confident that they have better risk mitigants in place to avoid future shocks, and to begin new lending to securely launch further growth.
