The proposed investment is a funded risk-sharing facility with Citibank, N.A. (“Citi”) in a portfolio of supply chain finance-related assets for up to US$300 million with IFC investment of up to US$150 million (the “Project”).
The Project falls under the Global Supply Chain Finance (GSCF) Program, a supply chain finance program launched by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) in December 2022. The GSCF supports open account trade in the emerging markets by providing funded or unfunded risk participation in partner banks’ facilities.
The project is part of a crisis response initiative, through which IFC plays a countercyclical role when the markets experience the turbulence due to the negative economic impacts of the ongoing global food and energy crisis.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC/MIGA
The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org
