Project scope and objective

The project’s objective is to support Banco Bolivariano in providing financing to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) whose main activities are focused on the sectors related to economic integration, commerce and the value chain and to promote the expansion of a specialized green credit line for SMEs. To achieve this objective, IDB Invest proposes to grant a loan of up to US$30 million with a term of up to six years. The project also includes a technical assistance (“TA”) to provide diagnostic tools, training and support to Banco Bolivariano with the goal of improving and promoting green lending for SMEs.
