Project Description
The objective of the second program under the conditional credit line for investment projects (CCLIP) ME-X1021 is to help raise productivity in Mexico's rural areas by financing production restructuring, investment, and enterprise and export-development projects. Accordingly, medium and long-term credit resources will be channeled to the rural sector through FIRA (Agricultural Trust Fund)'s network of financial intermediaries to enable enterprises, particularly micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises, in the rural agribusiness, commerce, and related services sectors to carry out their production restructuring, investment, and enterprise and export-development projects. The CCLIP's objective is to promote private investment in production restructuring, investment, and enterprise and export development projects that boost productivity or promote more efficient use of natural resources, primarily in Mexico's rural sector, through long-term financing that facilitates a greater supply of credit for such investments under favorable conditions. The loan provides resources to fund second-tier credit operations. Therefore its environmental and social impacts and risks will occur at the subloan level and cannot be foreseen ex ante.
Investment Description
The program will have a single credit component for US$50 million to fund investment and technology adoption projects. Eligible projects will be those submitted by rural agroindustrial, marketing, and services enterprises with the aim of investing in, e.g., machinery and processing, transport, and storage equipment; repairs or upgrading of plants, warehouses and depots; the modernization of power plants; the treatment of wastewater; and other investments geared toward raising the productivity of the beneficiaries. The second Conditional Credit Line Program will be financed with resources from the Bank’s Ordinary Capital, in U.S. dollars, up to 50 million.
