Lines of Credit

Small and medium size enterprises (SMEs) provide significant opportunities for accelerating economic growth within the region. Owing to limitations of scale, SMEs may find themselves excluded from mainstream loan markets. Due to lack of appropriate delivery channels, the Bank may not be able to reach the SMEs directly.

The Bank therefore provides Lines of credit to national and regional development finance institutions (DFIs), micro finance institutions (MFIs) and local banks to enhance its support to SMES and new projects.
