The project seeks to respond to the liquidity and financing challenges faced by households and businesses in vulnerable and poor segments - as well as the providers of inclusive financial service (PIFS) that serve them - as a result of emergencies produced by natural and other disasters in Central America. The project will support Fundacion Covelo in: (i) responding immediately to the emergency financing needs arising from the natural catastrophes that occurred in 2020; and (ii) the creation of a financial vehicle ("facility") with a permanent horizon to respond to crises generated by natural emergencies, financial crises, or of crises of different nature that affect the supply of financial services or that have the effect of reducing economic activity in the countries of Central American in the future. The proposed new vehicle will respond to the emergency financing needs and demands of PIFS that serve the poorest and vulnerable segments of the region (savings and credit cooperatives, rural agricultural cooperatives, and microfinance institutions). With the availability of such financing, it will sustainably strengthen the supply inclusive financial services catering to thousands of individuals, households, and micro and small enterprises with agile and innovative solutions.
The country's counterpart amount to US$ 10,000.00.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IADB
The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IIC is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
