Project scope and objective

The proposed Project includes an unsecured senior loan for up to US$50 million for Banco Patagonia S.A. (“Patagonia”) that will allow that institution to support the financing of investment projects in small and medium-sized enterprises ("SMEs") in Argentina with a focus on the agricultural sector. The proposed loan will provide Patagonia with: (i) an A loan from IDB Invest for up to US$18 million; and (ii) another A loan from the Inter-American Development Bank ("IDB") for up to US$32 million. Total IDB Group financing will be disbursed over a maximum term of seven years in various tranches, for terms of three, four, and seven years. In addition, efforts will be made to mobilize additional funds from B lenders.
